Breast Cancer Month- Pink Quilts
October,, It's Breast Cancer Awareness month. This page of pink and white quilts was created to bring attention to the disease that affects so many women and some men. As is known, the pink ribbon is an international symbol of Breast Cancer Awareness and the color pink identifies those in support of the cause. There are few that remain untouchd by the disease in some way or another. It may be a friend, a mother, a sister, a relative and just an overwhelming number of women that have been affected. ( I actually thought of doing this page, as my husband was watching the PBR, Professional Bull Riders, and the riders participating in the event were wearing pink shirts in support of this cause.) The saying "Tough Enough to Wear Pink", shows their support among the men of this sport and they all had on pink! This cause is well known among the western industry as the participants at the National Finals Rodeo in Vegas will also have a pink go round......
With thought of this "Pink" page , I have decided to leave this page on year long, as breast cancer awareness is a constant issue.
Offering this quilt called Road to California and sometimes called Jacobs Ladder. Patterns will be called differently at times depending on the region of the country. The quilt is in excellent condition and is just a 2 color quilt making it so easy to decorate with other mixed colors. The fine hand quilting is at 8-9 spi. The separate pink binding is stitched on by hand and this quilt is very usable. It was displayed in the Pink Exhibit at the Road to California Quilt Show in 2013. This quilt will also be in the Pink for Breast Cancer Awareness gallery... From Ohio.
Offering this Cactus Basket pattern quilt that is also called "Cake Stand". The quilt is in unused condition and is excellent/mint, having had a light bath and is ready to enjoy. All hand quilted at a nice 7-8 spi and the rose colored binding is also stitched on by hand. The "baskets" are a popular double pink colored fabric and the alternate blocks a nice small checked gingham fabric. The background on the baskets is a small print shirting fabric. The small blocks are only 5 1/2 inches in size. Note the one imperfect block as shown. Sometimes that was done intentionally by the quilt maker. This was due to the belief that only God was perfect.
