Nekkid CQ Block


Nekkid CQ Block
Originally uploaded by lasassone.
Recently I was asked to become involved in a project with several friends for Breast Cancer Advocacy. As you may know, for the past few years many needle artists have been creating bras for a Bra Calendar and Exhibition.

This project, called the Way to Women's Wellness Foundation, has raised over $50,000 for Breast Cancer Research. It was founded by Victoria Adams Brown who is the owner of www.ribbonsmyth.com. She has personal experience with breast cancer by way of family members.

This is an additional project where several needle artists are creating crazyquilt blocks which will be put together for a quilt to be displayed at a cancer hospital in Texas.

This block is MY unembellished effort for this project. The areas that may appear gray in the picture are actually sage and light green. I apparently have a camera that loves peach and doesn't recognize certain shades of green! Who knew?

I will be taking some time off from my current Redwork embroidery project to embellish this block and will post another photo when the block is completed.
