Breast Cancer Block


This is a Block I made to help a group member of Crazy Quilting international Yahoo Group for a Breast Cancer Fund raiser. It was a challenge to stay in the colour range of shades of white and cream. I found that I needed to add a little pink or green to most of the seams or embelishments so they would show up. I hope that it will arrive in time to be included in the quilt she is preparing.


My Mom had a brush with breast cancer and her Mother passed away after a nasty battle with it. So This time I made a Block in Mom's honour. If I should ever do another I will do it for my Grandma who passed away 2 years before I was born.

These are Wyld Roses and it is the first time I was abe to do them successfully. Yay!!!!
These are my second attempt to do the Melanie Rose The buds are the Grifin Rose Bud. My first atempt at the Melanie Rose can be found here. I just love how they turn out.
