    Relay For Life Raffle Quilt

    Here's what I've been working on lately, and just finished last night: a queen-sized carpenter star to be raffled off at my husband's bank for Relay for Life. I really just hope it earns enough back to pay for materials; anything beyond that would be awesome! It will have lavender backing and it will be quilted in dark purple thread. I chose the purple because that's the official Relay for Life color. Now on to the quilter's!

    I love purple. This is beautiful and for such a great cause!! I lost my husband to cancer so I am an avid Relay for Life supporter. I know it will bring lots of money for cancer research and lot of comfort to the recipient!!
