A block for breast cancer research…

Linda and I are both making a block for a new quilt to benefit breast cancer research. I don’t know how many blocks there will be in the quilt but I would bet it’s going to be a big quilt. The Susan G. Komen Foundation will handle the auction/sale and the funds raised with the quilt. The quilt will be shown at the IQA show in Houston next year and at other venues.

I used a block from Applique Delights, enlarging it to 9″ x 9″ finished size. The block colors were set by the people coordinating this project. I think it’s going to be a lovely quilt and I hope they raise a lot of money!

  1. It is beautiful! The colors are wonderful, but very unlike what we usually see in your work 🙂 Thanks for sharing, and for showing me an alternative (and still absolutely gorgeous) colorway for your block!


  2. Such a lovely block. I’ve been catching up today on your blog as so enjoyed Linda’s photos from the guild. And as always I am impressed by the “do it yourself” projects, Becky.
