"Kansas Race Against Cancer Quilt" by Kate

Kansas Race Against Cancer  

We are having our yearly race and I volunteered, with help from one of the nurses, to make this year's queen-size quilt for the raffle. It's the kaleidoscope pattern with the light blue areas quilted with a ribbon pattern in the center and flower in each corner. It was a little bit of a struggle with the pattern blocks because the repeat pattern of the fabric wasn't consistent so the centers were not perfect. We picked blue instead of pink because after talking to a lot of the men that bought tickets last year they said "I don't want a pink quilt on my bed! Can you do some other color?" I think it turned out OK and I hope it brings in a lot of contrubutions.   Kate

Beautiful quilt - the yellow really adds a nice bit of spark.  Should be a good money-maker.

The quilting is amazing did you quilt it by hand or machine? The pattern is wonderful and of courses I love all blue.  I found a great website where you can download quilt patterns, if you would be interested; they are unique and creative downloadable quilt patterns.  In fact, they have a great selection of all types of quilt patterns, kits and just about everything.  The site is http://www.toadusew.com.

Good for you, listening to the guys' suggestion on color!  It's a lovely quilt--if I had my way, everything in my house would be some shade of blue.  This encourages me to try a kaleidoscope-type design.  Best of success on the sale of tickets--someone is going to love this quilt!

Kate, this quilt is more than OK - it's great!  Like most of us, I bet you're the only one who notices the centers are not exactly the same at all the points. It's a wonderful quilt and whoever wins it in the raffle will have a great keepsake.
