Blogger’s Quilt Festival Modern Entry – Striped City Quilt

My second and last entry into the Blogger’s Quilt Festival is a quilt design by the amazing Kaffe Fassett using his fabrics.  It is the Striped City Quilt from his book Quilts in Sweden. I have made several, what I consider modern quilts over the last year but this one has special significance for me.  It was made and raffled off to generate money for a friend’s 6 year old stepson who has advance cancer.  I raised $2000 and the winner of the raffle was a friend with cancer who has defied all the odds having survived 10 years after getting the diagnosis of metastatic melanoma.  Those things alone make this quilt one of my favorites ever.
