I am going to make two quilts in the next couple of weeks. One is for Gene Black’s Quilt Angels that provides quilts to young people who are in a shelter situation. The second is a quilt for the mother of my daughter’s friend Katie. Katie’s Mom has just been diagnosed with breast cancer and will be having surgery and chemotherapy beginning right away. I am asking your suggestions for Katie’s Mom’s quilt.
Katie and Em both thought pink would be the right color. And they thought the grandchildren could make handprints with paint on fabric to be part of the quilt. My suggestion was that they do the handprints on paper and let me make jpgs of them to print on fabric as that would hold up better than paint so the quilt can be machine washed.
This quilt will be a combination of blocks that include the blocks from the grandchildren. I have the wordcloud that I put on the mug rugs and the free breast cancer awareness ribbons embroidery. Here are some links to quilts I found:
And here’s a Pinterest board with lots of eye candy for pink ribbon quilts.
And this is a search of all of Pinterest for breast cancer quilts.
What suggestions do you have for the quilt for Katie’s Mom?
