The "Quilts for Cancer" Quilt Assembled

I started a small group called, "Quilts for Cancer," and each month we each make a block or two and send them to the woman who is making the quilt for the month. I received the most beautiful blocks and put them together. Now I just have to ask my friend, Emilie Mannion, to quilt it for me!! I hope whoever receives it enjoys it and gets some strength from all of the love put into the blocks by the wonderful ladies who made it!
Peace,
Nancy

A Couple of Sawtooth Stars


Good morning,
I am going to make a wall hanging with 4 of these - these are all new to me, and I am really thrilled with how cool pieced blocks come out!! I don't know that I have the patience to do 40 of them, but I can handle 4!!!

Morning,
I just finished a few blocks for my heal at do.Good Stitches. It was a ribbon star block from Faith at http://www.freshlemonsquilts/, shown here:

I love the design and the colors the Good Stitches member requested. These quilting bees are really pushing me to do things I would never have done, like traditional blocks in great colors.

Hovering Hawks

This is one of my blocks going to the NuBees Quilting Group on flickr. I really loved the orange and blue together, a lot more than I thought I would. It is going to a woman who is making a "Gator" quilt for her husband. Hope he likes it!!!
