Think Pink

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.


  1. Thank you Jennifer - our Board President (a breast surgeon) bought the quilt for her office! Nancetta
