Rays of Hope

This is Brenda from Scraps and Strings with a first attempt at the Priority Challenge. I used batik leftovers from this quilt made for my cousin's wedding last spring -- my aunt, my mom and I collaborated on it and the rest of the aunts and uncles contributed to cover the cost. A few days ago, one of those aunts died of Alzheimer's, so I decided to use the scraps in this quilt challenge. I'm calling it Rays of Hope and I plan to quilt more rays in it, and perhaps have some fun with bugle beads as well. And for the record, it has some liberated effects -- I had to piece the yellow and I added a cut off piece of ray from the top on the bottom. This measures about 8 by 11.5 unfinished.
