Breast Cancer Block

I am making two blocks for a crazy quilt to benefit breast cancer. Leslie Ehrlich (http://pinyoncreek.blogspot.com/) organized us all and is putting the quilt together. The quilt is constructed all in white, cream and ecru - some touches of gold allowed as well as very pastel pinks and greens for SRE. The fabrics are all from wedding dresses!

This is the first of my two blocks for the project. The theme is hearts so I have added a few here and there. There is a lot of lace on this block as well as some beadwork, etc. The hardest parts were getting started and getting over the common aversion to white lace.

Thursday is a good tv night so hopefully I'll get a chance to sit and stitch all evening and finish up the second block.

Hello Kerry, The stitching on this block you have created is very very pretty. I am sure it will be a lovely addition to the quilt. Hugs Judy
