This is a close up of one block of the quilt I made for a donation. I work three mornings a week at a small, private school for autistic kids. Each spring the school holds a Fiesta Fundraiser because the tuition paid by the school districts doesn't cover all of the costs. The fundraiser is a fun evening with good food, loud music, and lots of lavish raffle baskets. This will be the third quilt I've donated to the fundraiser, and it's one of the best causes I can imagine.
We're unable to attend this year's event because I'll be away at our semi-annual Black Rock quilt retreat.
Here's the whole quilt. The solid blues, greens and purples were a GFNO* from my buddy Julie.
|This isn't a quilt, obviously, but rather a pair of blocks for May's Queen Bee. I hadn't paper pieced in several months, so I got off to a rocky start with the first block. Eventually things settled down.|
