    Default Relay for Life Cancer Fundraiser Quilt

    I don't have the borders on the quilt top yet, but the piecing is done! This is the quilt I was commissioned to make for the Relay for Life Cancer Research Fundraiser. It is my original design.

    The purple and blue are the fundraiser colors. The blue background isn't a solid blue. It actually has little white stars on it and looks like a lovely night sky.

    On either side of the big ribbon in the middle are 15, mini-embroidered cancer awareness ribbons. There are 30 total ribbons embroidered on the quilt to represent the 30 different types of cancer. The embroidered ribbons are made with glow in the dark thread so they can be seen at night while the fundraiser is taking place. I tried to take a pic in the dark to show how beautifully the ribbons light up but my camera isn't sensitive enough to pick them up.

    The quilt will be raffled for the fundraiser to raise money for cancer research. I REALLY enjoyed making this quilt. It came out so lovely!
