Introducing SOULFUL SHADES OF PINK by Laura Berringer, with a beautiful BOM quilt designed by Material Girlfriends that combines piecing with applique details.Laura’s expressive mix of dusty pinks with white and soft grey creates a fresher, more sophisticated palette for today’s breast cancer awareness projects. The Material Girlfriends developed their “Bona Fide” quilt pattern around the line, stressing specific meanings to the colors used. In the psychology of color, Pink represents a gentle and caring love, such as a love for a girlfriend, mother, sister, or daughter. Grey represents sorrow, while White represents hope and healing.
“One in eight women will be diagnosed with breast cancer in her lifetime, which means we all know someone fighting this disease. Our purpose for designing Bona Fide using Soulful Shades by Laura Berringer is to help us be true to the emotional roller coaster of love, sorrow, hope, and healing. This project encourages us to feel and express through color and quilting,” explained Material Girlfriends’ Lisa Norton.
With fabrics coming to quilt shops in May, you’ll be able to complete the 6-month project in time for breast cancer awareness activities in October. In addition, a portion of all sales of Soulful Shades of Pink fabrics will be donated to support breast cancer research.
