Pink Ribbon Quilt Block

This 12" Pink Ribbon block is the 25th and final block of my Starwood Sampler Quilt, created to tell the story of my home and community.  I made it as a block of the month with my quilting group, the Persian Pickles.  A friend and I chose the blocks, and we found this pattern free on-line at Quilter's Cache here.  Alternate blocks in my quilt are set straight and on point.  This block is set with the gold fabric as sashing and red fabric as the corner stones.

This block was made in honor of my dear friend Jodi, who has successfully battled breast cancer since June 2007.  She was a wonderful kindergarten teacher to two of my sons and to many other children as well.  I volunteered in her class, and later we taught at the same school.  We are in a Praying Mamas group together as well as a quilt guild and Persian Pickles quilting group.  As you can see, we have many interests in common!

  1. I like that setting. Maybe it would be nice for my book club blocks. (I'm taking notes)!

  2. Beautiful BOM quilt finish!! I think making a BOM with a local group of gals is soooo much fun! So many great memories mad. Sorry to hear about the loss of a dear friend.


I love hearing from readers. Your comments make my day!
