Terry Atkinson Pattern
InstructionsThis quilt was totally strip pieced and was from a Terry Atkinson pattern book. Unfortunately, I don't remember which book. Great project for your strips.
Type of item: Functional
I used 100% cotton fabrics.
What was your inspiration?
One of my closest friends had been diagnosed with breast cancer and had undergone a double mastectomy. I wanted to create a quilt to be auctioned for the Susan G. Komen event to raise money for breast cancer. This was an event that had been created for the quilting industry. My friend had gotten very sick and the quilt was never entered, so I purchased it back from her and the check went directly to Susan G. Komen. You will be glad to know that my friend has been cancer free for several years now.
What are you most proud of?
The fact that I made this for my friend and the money went to a very good cause! Also, I love the quilting that i did. It was a curly heart design done with a rayon thread.
What advice would you give someone starting this project?
Be creative and use lots of different fabric. I used many different fabrics. I think the more fabrics you use the more interesting it becomes.
