I recently traveled home to visit family and took with me this small quilt to donate to the Susan G Komen Southeastern Colorado organization which my sister started working as the executive director of earlier this year.
Our mother had breast cancer so this is a charity near and dear to my heart. If you are above the age of forty make sure you get your annual mammogram as early detection is key.
I called it Ribbons of Love.
The fabric is hand painted and I machine appliqued the small ribbons. I played with two relatively new books on machine quilting to do the feathered heart and the corners. The feathers were from Sue Nickels – Fabulous Feathers & Fillers and the corners from Karen McTavish – Custom Curves.
As usually I was under a tight deadline and actually finished the binding out in Colorado.
