The Breast Cancer Awareness Designer Bandana Quilt Challenge.

When I got the package from Simplicity, I ignored these bandanas.
So I put them in the closet.
I read the paper before I make the quilt.

* Must use our cherish Bandanas
* Must uses Simplicity Studio Tools: 30 and 45 degree triangles, 4.5", 6.5" Squares

Oh, I need the bandanas? Where are they? I needed looking for them in my closet.

They required a Digital image.

My bathroom Tragedy couldn't let me to do any work for long time.
My schedule was behind. I was mentally sick in many reasons.
---- I put the post of my bathroom in a couple of days, but I took it out.

I called Michele and asked, "I need a couple of more days! I need to send you the digital image, right? Then you will choose who can be in the challenge, right?"
She said, "Since you were the winner last year, just go ahead to make it."

Oh thanks!!!

Here is my idea on my sketchbook.
Here is my quilt.
See, it is different from my sketchbook..
I was so glad I could skipped a digital image.
I'm not a quilter. I didn't know where to go.

I lost my mother who suffered with Breast Cancer three years ago. My life has changed.

I had a mammogram in this year, and Dr. suspected I might have it. It was very scary moment waiting the result of biopsy. My friend had an operation in this year. My son's Aunt, Barbara is a survivor of Breast cancer.
During the process of making the quilt, I was thinking about my mother and my life, but I didn't cry.
Pink color and my fabrics supported me to finish.
It is a very happy looking quilt. I love the result!
I used to paint many "Blooming woman".
It was my appreciation of life as I was born a woman. We all got birth from the mother who produce milk. I'm glad I could give my milk to my son.
We need BOOBS!
I thought my blooming women could be in my quilt.
They were perfect to fit and symbols of hope on my quilt.

This quilt dedicated to my mother and people are suffering with the breast cancer.

I put all hope into my BOOBS!
God Bless us!

What a wonderful quilt, so meaningful. I too live with the threat of breast cancer with more scares than I could count. I am lucky as for the past four years I have been given regular checks and mamograms. Any problems, lumps or bumps quickly dealt with. As women it is something we all are at risk of and I have great respect for all those who have survived it and the families of those who lost.
Love Pene x
