2008 artbra block1


These are the beginning pics of two blocks I am working on for the art bra quilt. This is an annual project that is done for breast cancer. This year it sounds like the quilt will be donated to the Burlington Hospital BC Center. How kewl is that? The hopes is that it will let those folks going thru treatment know that they are being thought and cared about across the world! The theme this year is butterflies and the colors are salmon, yellow, periwinkle, green and cream.... YUMMY spring colors. My initial plan with this butterflies was to have strips of color radiating out, but it just wasn't looking right, sooo, I adapted it into cq wings on a cq cream back ground. I will now bead a fimo face on and create a body of sorts. I may bead it as well. The second block I am working on...... will have dimensional free standing lace butterflies on it so it will be a different look from my first one! Enjoy!

I love your butterfly. I kept looking at it and thinking, "That looks more like a butterfly than a bra." LOL! I'm such a dimwit. I look forward to seeing what you do on both blocks.

Hello Leslie,

Your very very lovely butterfly "Curvy" block is looking wonderful. I look forward to seeing your fantastic beading created on it. Hugs Judy
