Quilting For Dollars

I have had the distinct privilege of quilting this one, a combined effort by the talented hands of my own Bee. This quilt has a great big job ahead; to raise money for the American Cancer Society at an upcoming Relay for Life event through raffle ticket sales. The block pattern is "True Lover's Knot" from the book Quilts from The Quiltmakers Gift. The sweet colors combined with chocolate are yummy. I chose the same Hearts in Bloom pantograph for the quilting that I used in the border of the wedding quilt for my son and DIL, it has produced a soft over-all effect.

...let the ticket sales begin...
Life is Good!

I would love to see the whole quilt. I made a similar one for my son and DIL and I've been agonizing over the right borders to put on it. Any chance you can post a picture? Great quilting too.
