My charity . . .

Most quilters have a cause that they quilt for . . . there are so many worthwhile organizations . . . but my charity of choice is Hospice Calgary - a not-for profit organization that does amazing work - lead by an amazing team of dedicated professionals.  I made this quilt for a fund raiser for Hospice Calgary. 

The pattern is Starlight by Marilyn Foreman and uses a selection of Timeless Treasures fabrics.  The centre "Tree of Life" is a panel surrounded by 24 star blocks.  I quilted it using an all over design, with continuous curve quilting in each of the blocks.  The backing is Northcott Stonehenge Gold - perfect!  Glide Thread - Sand; Hobbs 80/20 batting.

I hope it did well at the silent auction . . .
