Breast Cancer Blocks and Lime Green Calling

Breast Cancer Blocks

In addition to the applique block in the post below, I've been busy embroidering a few other breast cancer awareness blocks to place into a quilt that will be given away. I went on a hunt for unique and different breast cancer ribbon embroidery files and here's what I've found that I purchased from several embroidery sites such as emblibrary, dreamwestembroidery, and creativeconnectionsembroidery.

I also used tear away stabilizer for the first time. I love this stuff. I'm thinking it would be great being used for paper piecing as well. Look how easily it removed from the angels!

Lime Green Calling

I've always favored bright quilts using black as the background fabric. So, I have a bunch of different brights and black fabric. As I was working on the angel blocks above, I looked up at my stash and saw two fabrics close together that immediately caught my eye finally. It's some lime green flowered fabrics and black and white polka dot fabric. I know this is not everyone's cup of tea but I'm going to try and work with them.

So, it's off to my EQ6 software to try and come up with some type of quilt design using these two fabrics. I'll keep you posted.
