I just couldn't wait to see how things were going to go together. This is what I have so far. I have not used up all my flowers, just wanted to see how they would like. I was wondering how I was going to put these together until I saw the antique quilts Mary posted on her blog. I liked the look of just the white background. I was thinking of green to represent leaves but I just didn't feel like I wanted that but when I saw that quilt on Mary's blog that was when I made my decision to make the quilt this way.
Yesterday was my sewing group. I don't know how but I forgot to take my camera. We had a great time. We are making a double Irish Chain, which we will raffle off and use the proceeds for a charity at the church. The fabrics that were chosen for the quilt are great. I will haven to remember my camera next month so you can see the material. This is the first time I have ever made an Irish Chain. I certainly have admired them through out the years, just have never made one.
Well that's about it for today. I have the binding sewn on the breast cancer quilt and the brown/pink quilt. I need to sew the back by hand now. I will post pictures of the completed quilts after binding is completely sewn. Have a great day, remember it is the beginning of day light savings time.

Single Irish Chain was one of my very first quilts - I had no understanding of what I was doing . . . at all, but I managed to follow the book and it all worked out. Your hexagons look great - I don't think I have ever met one I didn't like *s*

This is so pretty! I have friend who did one just like yours, with one row of white connecting hexes and it is a beauty! Great job! Enjoy the process.

Your Grandmother's flowergarden is ging to be beautiful! And it looks like you made the right choice of white in stead of green - you have a very clean and crisp contrast here, and the flowers just pop up :o)

I would have thought of using green too until I saw (and bought) my quilt last month. I love how the white looks both with your flowers and on my 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.
