Relay for Life Quilt

I'm so happy to share my most recently finished quilt.  My sister runs the Relay for Life drive for her company and she asked me to make a quilt for her to enter into a raffle.  Yay!  What a great excuse to make a quilt.  I chose to use Kate Spain's Terrain fabric for this quilt and based it on this quilt made by Bryan House Quilts.

These blocks are each 26" square and with the added borders came out to a perfect queen sized quilt.  I thought that since this quilt will be in a raffle it needed to be "traditional" enough for those who like traditional quilts and yet still have a "modern" flair to it.  I hope I succeeded in achieving that balance.

The backing is mostly Kona purple (even though it's showing more blueish in the picture) with a strip of Terrain on the back.

A friend of mine, Gail, from my quilting guild did the longarm quilting on it and I think she did a perfect job!  Thank you Gail!

I made this quilt in memory of my father who died of cancer and my sister who is a cancer survivor!  I hope and pray this quilt raises a lot of money for cancer research and finds a home where it is well loved.
