Hi I am new to the club. I am a one year breast cancer survivor. I have being sewing since I was a girl but am an intermediate quilter. I want to make a quilt for our local cancer group to auction for funds. These funds are used for helping local people with gas money and other things. We are a rural group. I live in Eden, Texas which is the geographical center of Texas. We only have two fabric stores in our closest town. I found 7 different breast cancer fabrics and would like to incorporate them if possible in the quilt. If there are suggestions for something not to difficult for me I would appreciate it.
Hi and Welcome!
How about a simple star pattern? Maybe with sashing maybe not, depending on how busy the fabrics are. Can you post pictures of the fabrics?
I'm in the piney woods of East Texas, just east of Lake Livingston.

Perhaps a simple nine patch with sashing. You can incorporate a triangle on the sides of the 9-patch and then set them on point...or just keep it simple. Your quilting choices will make the quilt.
Here is photo of a simples 9-patch, my 1st quilt, hand quilted.
Joni, It's lovely! I really like blue and white quilts. You did a great job.
Congratulations on that great news. If I were to design a breast cancer quilt... I would do circles like olympic rings intertwined with folk art hands appliqued in center of rings down the center, with the ribbon shape around around the border some how. Just a thought . Good luck on your design.

Love your blue and white quilt, Joni. I too, am partial to blues. Ginny
Many thanks, yes I love blue and white quilts. I have a couple more I would like to make this year. It just might be accomplished, I'm slowly collecting the fabrics.
