Quilt for Breast Cancer



My kindred group, "Friends in Stitches" likes to have a project on the go. It is usually something that will be donated to a charity. This is our latest completed quilt. We named it "Bali-Ho" but the real pattern name is The Puzzler, which was in a fall issue of Quilters Newsletter magazine, I think sometime in 2005. One our group found the pattern and we pooled all of our Batik fabrics. One evening we had a cutting party and then devided up the blocks and went home to sew. We did make a few changes to the original pattern. Our is a quilt-as-you-go. We are going to enter it in the local quilt show this fall and then it will be donated to "The Quilt" a Canadian group who's Auctions quilts for Breast cancer support. http://www.thequilt.com/ Our guild also contributes a quilt annually. I can tell you we are very proud of this, It is so beautiful in Bali's.

Those fabrics sing in the quilt- hope it makes lots of $$ for charity!
