Relay Quilt

The t-shirt quilt I made for the silent auction at Relay for Life is done and hanging at the library. I'll try to add a picture so you can see it. The ribbons have the names of 10 people from my town who have had an impact on my life. After losing my 53 yr old Aunt to breast cancer I needed to do something positive towards a cure and this quilt was the answer. I felt she was sitting on my shoulder the whole time encouraging me to finish and not give up.

The teal ribbon is for my neighbor and friend Marilyn Peters who taught kindergarten for 51 years here in our town. She was amazing and Ovarian cancer took her just a month after her diagnosis. She is missed!

Quilt back from the long arm quilter

The woman who did my long arm quilting on DD's quilt did a great job. Since there were cabbage roses in the fabric she quilted cabbage roses in it all over. It was a bit more expensive than I was hoping for, but, worth it.
($117.00) in case inquiring minds want to know. This included an extra charge of $7.00 for the light pink thread I wanted.
I am happy with the results.
Since it is for her birthday, not until October, I'm going to put it away for a bit so I can finish up 2 baby quilts.
