Evelyn originally designed the Peppermint Breeze quilt and tote bag for publication by the National Quilting Association in The Quilting Quarterly, Winter 2012. She expanded her Peppermint Breeze pattern (3 quilt sizes plus tote) for Quilt for a Cause, Inc. The quilt is made with only 4 fabrics using the rotary cut method with easy piecing instructions. Bonus: Instructions are included for making an oversized tote bag using pieces leftover from making the quilt.
All proceeds from the pattern sales go to Quilt for a Cause, Inc., a 501c3 nonprofit organization which uses the art and business of quilting to pursue advances in breast and/or gynecological cancers by raising funds for research, by continuing the education of medical professionals, and by supporting clinical organizations that raise awareness, offer detection and provide treatment for all women.
