Quilt for a Cure – My Small Contribution

My local quilt shop is coordinating a challenge to help the American Cancer Society and Relay for Life. Participants are given a packet of fabrics from which to create a 12½” block. The blocks will then be sewn together to create a sampler quilt to be raffled as a fundraiser for Relay for Life. What a great idea!

I'd like to share my block. I chose Hand of Friendship for the center, with the Quilt for a Cure logo from the fabric in the middle, and then bordered it out to the correct size.

As the printing on the fabric was faint, I darkened it with a pigma pen. As usual, I didn’t manage to think to do this BEFORE I sewed the block together. Oh no – I waited until it was completely done so the pressure was on! Had I messed up my tracing, it would have been back to the beginning. But luck was with me and I stayed on the lines.
I actually have enough fabric left to make another block so may get that done before the deadline in Feb. If so, I’ll be sharing again!
