Breast Cancer Quilt - In Process!!

Every year in October, a group of ladies gets together and has a Breast Cancer Awareness Dinner and Auction.  A couple of years ago I donated my first rag quilt. You can read that post HERE!!  I really enjoyed doing the rag quilt as you don't have to be as precise as a traditional quilt, and it goes together quickly!

So this year I decided to make a traditional quilt for the Breast Cancer Awareness Auction.  I really like the Disappearing 9 Patch.  I found a great tute here, and I thought that looked easy enough for a first quilt.

I made my 9 patch blocks out of 4" x 4" squares of fabric.  Since this is for the breast cancer dinner, I decided to make it pink.  Imagine that, right??

I have 25 blocks made.  Here are pictures of some of the blocks.

Since this is for the Breast Cancer event, I also threw in some fabric I have that supports the awareness as well.

I laid all 25 blocks out in a 5 x 5 pattern.  I really like it like that, so I'm thinking I'm not going to make them disappear.  Instead, I'm going to put a white border around each block, and perhaps a dark pink square at each intersection.  I have 8 1/2 weeks to get this done.  So if I don't post much through the next few weeks, blame it on the pink!!

Here are the last pictures I took before sitting down to write this post.  It's of my helper/inspector.........  I wonder what he's thinking..............

He looks pretty content - - I believe he approves!!

I'll keep you posted on this project. 

Thanks for stopping by!!
