This is the quilt I made for my sister.  She is an amazing lady who I admire a lot. She also happens to be a breast cancer survivor.  Through diligent mammograms and early detection the disease was caught and treated.  I wanted to make her a prayer quilt but pink ribbons don't really seem to be her thing so I used the ribbon block and added a wee bit of pink around the edges. 



The quilting is a combination of free motion and walking foot.  I actually measured and traced and tried to do things correctly.    There are more details on my blog.

Thanks everyone.  Mare, the pattern is by Ryan Walsh.  http://www.ryanwalshquilts.com/2011/09/ryans-holiday-ribbon-block-celebrate.html  It is simple.
