Relay for Life Quilt


I am so excited to be able to post this picture...this is the quilt that I was working on a while ago for the Relay for Life for Andy's office's team to auction to raise money. The pattern is from the Buggy Barn book Around the Bend...there were days that I really didn't think I'd ever get this done, but I knew it was for a good cause so I got it done. Since I made the commitment to do it, one of Andy's employees was diagnosed with cancer, so it HAD to be done. I e-mailed Judy L and told her about the quilt top and she said she'd be glad to quilt it for me. Well, Judy worked her magic...she quilted it with a wonderful heart panto in a pale yellow thread and it is just beautiful. The binding is on, Andy is figuring out what he wants on the label...he's taking it into the office in the morning. I hope they like it.

This quilt is SEW PRETTY!!! I love the fabric colors!!!! I am sure lots of people will buy chances on it and it will help raise lots of money for a great cause. Did you mean for the reds to form a heart like shape? That is what I first noticed. :) ~Bonnie
