"Hope" for Breast Cancer Quilt Top

I call this one "Hope" for Breast Cancer! It was made up of all Breast Cancer Fabrics. The original pattern name is called "Blue Lagoon" from the Jelly Roll Quilts Book by Pam & Nicky Lintott. Unlike the "Blue Lagoon" in the book I didn't put a border around this one. Kinda like it that way! I completed the quilt top in a week: while the girls took their naps and nights that I could sew. It came together pretty quickly. I was surprise. I might be doing another one later though.

A closer look at the fabrics.

Closer, closer look of the fabrics.

It's just a Quilt Top for now. Don't know if I want to sell it, like is. Or keep it for the Longarm Machine that I might get in years to come. It would be (in my opinion) a perfect practice piece for the Longarm. Don't you think? I told that to my hubby and he said "But that might be a VERY long wait". Little does he know that I have other quilt tops waiting to be quilted for 4-5 years now! I guess for those, I'm also waiting for the machine to make it easier for me to quilt them instead of just doing simple stitches. 
Happy stitchin'
