mom's block...

...just wanted to share my mom's first block with you...she doesn't have a blog but is thrilled to be included in this challenge...as you can see, her 3rd color choice is a great pink/fuchsia batik...the pattern is called samurai squares...:

...mom is a breast cancer survivor so pink is a special color for her...☺...i think it's going to be a fabulous quilt, don't you?

This is a great block-the fabric of the small squares looks very Japanese!

Hi Cheri and Terri, What a great block! I love the pink and knowing now what it symbolizes for you will make this quilt much more special. I am happy that you are a participant!

Yes, your mom WILL have a fabulous quilt. What an inspiration to have chosen pink! I like it. With a mom, cousin and great friend all survivors, I have a lot of pink in my life, too. Tell your mom I said, "Rock on!"

I really like this block. The colors really grab you. Can't wait to see it put together. The design might look like an Irish Chain type pattern.
I'm holding my breath....LOL
Take care.
