Saturday Snapshot - A Special Project

There's a whole lotta pink going on in this quilt face, despite the light that is making those dark squares look red. They are actually a deep magenta /claret color. This is that Irish Chain variation that I started a while back ...

The finished quilt is twin sized and will be displayed around town for the summer, as it is being donated to the church mission committee's summer benefit raffle for the American Cancer Society's Cancer Awareness Drive. We have lost some good friends to cancer over the years, so decided to get behind cancer research this June. Hopefully, the church members will form a walking team for the annual walk event for cancer research funds and we'll kick off the raffle to honor Vicki and Bev and Bobby and Wallace, dear friends that are gone from us, but remembered fondly.
