Ribbons have long been used to show support for a cause. Yellow ribbons for military deployment. Purple ribbons for Alzheimer’s disease. Pink ribbons for breast cancer. It’s a simple way to say, “I care!”
October is Breast Cancer Awareness Month, and Jenny is ready with a beautiful pink ribbon quilt. Watch the tutorial and follow Jenny’s instructions to make an Easy Ribbon Quilt of your own. Purchase the Easy Ribbon Quilt Kit and we will donate part of the profits to the Breast Cancer Research Foundation.
(Jenny’s quilt is pink for breast cancer awareness, but this quilt can also be made up in different colors as a tribute other causes. So many possibilities!)
October is Breast Cancer Awareness Month. Did you know that more than 250,000 women will be diagnosed this year? Many of us have been touched by this terrible disease in one way or another, and when those hard times come, we search for ways to help.
Quilts are a beautiful way to show support and give comfort. Jenny has a tutorial from a few years back for a Ribbons of Hope Quilt but this year as Jenny was brainstorming ways to show her love and support for two of the Missouri Star Family’s very own Breast Cancer Survivors, she was able to come up with an even easier way to make a Ribbon Quilt Block.
Isn’t this Ribbon Block so stunning and powerful? It’s as simple as snowballing a few corners. Jenny got the idea from the X’s and O’s Quilt Tutorial and we want to share how it was done with you. Watch the video below for a mini tutorial on how to make this Ribbon Block and to hear Betty and Sherry’s stories of how they won their battles against Breast Cancer.
Check out the block diagram below. Use one block to make a pillow like Jenny or multiple blocks to make a table runner or quilt!
While October is Breast Cancer Awareness Month, we know that there are many out there affected by other types of cancer. You can make this Ribbon Quilt Block in another color to show your support to those battling other forms of cancer as well. Stitch by stitch, we can make a difference.
The next Summer Olympics will take place in 2020. If I start practicing now, I might be ready to compete in my favorite event: ribbon dancing! All I need is a sparkly costume and 20 feet of satin ribbon. Oh, and a bit of superhuman strength & agility. (A girl can dream, right?)
This week, we’re working on The Ribbon Dance Quilt. Click HERE to see how easy it is to create the look of a beautiful, twirling ribbon. This one is gold-medal worthy for sure!
