Relay for Life and a Quilt





Remember this quilt? Well, when my daughter-in-law was in the other night and mentioned that our local high school was going to have a "Relay for Life" event and asked if I wanted to donate something to be raffled. "Of course!" I said and this is what I gave her. Yesterday she sent home raffle tickets with my husband to start selling. :D
This is the reason I make quilts, to help other people in some way, shape, or form.

I think I would have had a hard time letting go of that quilt. I'm sure it will fetch a nice amount of donations for a good cause. The circle template looks wonderful - I like that it has those angle marks too.

I have admired that quilt since you first posted it. I couldn't find a reference to the pattern designer. I am sure it will raise a lot of donations. It is a beautiful quilt
