Cancer Quilt

This large lap quilt (or twin size) kinda got me well into making quilts. My daughter purchased a whole bunch of the left over quilt squares from the Susan Komen cancer quilt effort a few years ago. As some of you will remember, the call went out for quilt squares that would be assembled and auctioned off for funds for the Susan Komen Cancer foundation. The response was over whelming, and the extra squares were sold, for extra funds. The squares that my daughter bought for me to assemble came from all over, but mainly from the New England area. As you can see they are beautifully done. I had to do a lot of reading to assemble the squares and do them any kind of justice. I decided that they had to be placed within a lattice, and bordered; prior to quilting and binding. The quilt was then machine quilted, with a pattern of various sized and shaped hearts.
