Bra Quilt for Breast Cancer

This is a project that was completed by the Quiltsy Team prior to my involvement with them, but it is such a great project I had to share it with my readers…il_430xN.119880510

This one of a kind quilt was started in October 2008 by the Quiltsy Team. Many of us have been touched by Breast Cancer, and we wanted to do something to make a difference. With the project inspired by Whimbrella and a generous donation of theme fabric, volunteers came forth to make individually made and designed blocks. We ended up with 20 members making 22 blocks. JabaroDesigns volunteered to put the blocks together into a top, and did a fabulous job arranging the varied colors and styles into an attractive design.


After the top was sewn it was sent to DragonflyStitches to be professionally quilted. With all the embellishments it was not an easy task, but it came out beautifully. After quilting it traveled to PamelaQuilts to have the binding, label and hanging sleeve attached.


Now that we have finished the quilt it has been decided that we are going to offer it for sale here. The proceeds of this sale will be donated to a major charity that raises money specifically for breast cancer research. (We will name our charity as soon as we receive permission and will let the buyer know where the donation is going)


This quilt is a one of a kind item, and is a wonderful piece of art! It measures 56 x 78 inches. It has a hanging sleeve attached and is ready to hang. The label is made to show the name of each of the block makers in the order of the blocks on the front of the quilt. Our hope is that it will go to somebody who will enjoy knowing that it was made with lots of love and care.


We would recommend that this quilt be washed with caution. It does contain embellishments and a variety of materials of unknown origin. Chances are it could be hand washed with care, but it's not something you would just throw it in the washing machine.
