Yes, yet another black and white quilt!! This time the color that I added was pink, a BIG favorite of mine. There is a little story behind this quilt. I made it for my friend, who was diagnosed with breast cancer. It was to be auctioned at her Quilt Pink Event at her quilt store about 5 years ago.
Since then, she has been cancer free and monitored regularly. Her shop has closed and we miss having it around. Anyway, I love this quilt and it serves as a reminder to get my regular mammogram, which I did yesterday! For those of you who don't, I really encourage you to do so and do self-checks as well.
Now onto the quilt...
This quilt was all strip pieced from 2.5 inch strips. It was a pattern from Terry Atkinson
. I believe it was in one of her pattern books. Forgive me, I cannot remember which one. Is anyone familiar with this one?
Here is the entire quilt. Love it!! You can see though, I used white fabrics with black prints. I chose not to use black fabric with white print. I think it gives it more of a lighter feel.
Don't you think the variety of pinks with the black on white fabric is just joyous together? What do you think of the pink, Jane
I quilted it with a variegated trilobal polyester thread. It gave it a little bit of a sheen. The design was an edge to edge pantograph with hearts. Very sweet!
Couldn't resist just one more full shot of this quilt. So please remember to get regular mammograms and to remind your friends and loved ones to do the same.
