This is a donation quilt to my children's school alumni association, in honor and memory of my teacher and her husband (the principle) who also graduated from this school. I went to school about 80 miles from here. Small world.
All but three of the fabrics were from my stash (it's about time!!!).
Yea!!! They finally loaded!!!
Edited to add: Strips were cut 2-1/4 to finish 1-3/4: I was shooting for approx. 12" blocks. This is also double batted, cotton on the bottom, wool on top. Once this is bound, I will get wet and block the quilt. Hopefully the cotton will shrink a little, and the wool will give a faux traupunto look. Yes, I quilted this myself, on a longarm. I do have a quilting business. This is considered full custom.
I don't know yet how they are going to handle this. They may want to raffle this at their annual dinner, so that it stays with an alumni, or they may do a long term raffle to make more $. Doesn't matter to me.
