Quilt me Pink

Yeah! the Quilt Pink quilt is done and sent off to the Quilt Pink foundation to be auctioned off as a fundraiser for the Susan Komen Breast Cancer Foundation. The flowers in the center of the quilt represented those who have had breast cancer. I had a number of kind ladies help me make blocks ala "Tonya" style. It was a new method for most, let me tell you! And actually, most of the ladies that helped didn't even quilt. I was glad so many gave the effort for this great cause.
I don't know if you can see the quilting or not, but I quilted in words of encouragement, such as: hope, hugs, kisses, strength, faith, etc.
this is the back of the quilt. I used up ALL the extra squares and all the extra fabric. I had 3 full strips (2") left and that's it besides some odd and end scraps.

How cute - I've still got Tonya's letters on my to do list. I also made a quilt for Quilt Pink. Can't wait until the auction starts to see them all.

I'm finding my way around the ring, just wanted to say hi. The Quilt Pink quilt is great! I have Tonya's letters on my list too.

Aren't Tonya's letters fun to do. The background fabric is to die fo. That is the sort of thing I'm looking for.

Great quilt for a great cause. I love the words you chose to quilt into it. That backing is wonderful too - I'd love it as the front of a quilt.
