First Finish of 2017!

This past weekend I was able to get the binding on the quilt that I am donating to a Relay for Life fundraiser in my hometown. I try to donate a quilt for this cause that is close to my heart every second year. Various family members are cancer survivors including my mom. So I always try to help out when I can. Without further ado, here is the 2017 Relay Quilt.

I really love this Nighttime Blossoms Pattern! And it is so quick to get together. Of course, my fabrics seem more like Sunrise Blossoms ;)

The allover Swirl pattern went perfectly with this quilt. I also had to finish it fast to get it down to my hometown for the fundraiser.

At first, I was a bit tense quilting my first section of swirls. As I moved along though, it became easier and I found the quilt flow was relaxing. Just had to get over my first fear of it turning out disastrous! 

I am really happy with the result and almost wish I could keep it! Since it is going to a cause close to my heart, I have an easier time giving it up. However I do feel like I would like to make this quilt for myself again sometime ;)
