Assembling The Cancer Resource Center Quilt

Yesterday I worked diligently on the Cancer Resource Center (CRC) quilt. To complete the quilt, I needed to three additional blocks and a border to a section. All done QAYG, of course. Since this is an emotion quilt, I wanted to add some emotional words, but subtle and let the guild members blocks shine.

 At first, I was just going to use the grey 50wt Aurifil, but then I remember I had some orange 28wt Aurifil. I think it really adds to the blocks.

 This little strip was added on to a section that I have joined. I used the same orange Aurifil to quilt the words. I've always just used 50wt, I may have to start experimenting with different weights of Aurifil.

I have the most complicated section joined. Once the all sections are done, I'll join them all together.

This is the back of the section I've joined. I like the back too!
All in all, I think the quilt is coming together nicely.

Since I finished my blocks to complete the quilt and did some FMQ I'm linking up with FMQ Project Friday, TGIFF, Link-A-Finish Friday, Can I Get a Whoop, Whoop and Finish It Up Friday

Color Me Quilty!



  1. Wow...this quilt is so moving. And it says it all when it comes to cancer. It will truly be a gift to those being treated at your center... and for those who pass through the halls. Just beautiful.

  2. Beautiful quilt! I love the way the colors pop against the grey backgound.

  3. Hello Pat, These blocks are very effective. It is interesting seeing how much can be achieved with just quilting and minimum use of colour. Love, Muv

  4. What a cool quilt - it's looking lovely so far!

  8. Yes, it did come together nicely. It's beautiful and I really love the words quilted in yellow!
