Let's see what happens

I made this center block about 6 years ag. I was making a halloween quilt and tried to make cancy corns for the quilt, but my family said no way!!!, they didn't look like candy corn. Sooooo what did I do. I made a really hooky 70's looking flower out of the candy corns. This sat around for many years and now I have decided to make something out of this piece. So far this is what I have come up with. I used left overs from when I made my scrappy trip around the world. I am in the process now of making hour glass blocks that I will add next.
Before I add the hour glass blocks I will put a border of brown fabric. I really don't know how it will turn out, I am just making it up as I go along. I will keep you posted as I make more rounds and we will all see what the outcome is. I like this kind of quilt play.

Well done! It takes guts to develop a project started 6 years ago! I like what you have shown so far, and look forwad to see it progress:-)

Now that you mention it, I can see the candy corn. The flower is a much better idea *s*

I LOVE your hooky 70's looking flower and the resulting quilt you are making of it!!! That's going to be a fun quilt.

Common Breast Cancer Myths

The first myth pertaining to this disease is that it only affects women.

Second myth that is associated with this disease is that if one has found a lump during an examination, it is cancer.

Third is that it is solely hereditary

The next myth associated with breast cancer is downright ridiculous. Would you believe, that in this day and age, some individuals still think that breast cancer is contagious?

Conversely, some individuals foolishly believe that breast size determines whether or not one gets cancer.

Finally, another myth that is associated with this disease is that it only affects older people. This is not so. Although the chance of getting breast cancer increases with age, women as young as 18 have been diagnosed with the disease.
