    Sold at auction!!!

    I put together this quilt top for a friend who traded me my sewing for her quilting. She quilted two tops for me in trade for me putting together this quilt top for her. A member of her family is Autistic and when the clinic asked for donations for a fund raising auction she quilted up the top and donated it. Well…it sold for $1500…. I wish I had a pic of the quilted top. My picture really doesn’t do it justice. It is very very pretty. The quilt was king size and the picture only shows half of it. ) I just can't believe something I helped to make went for $1500 at a charity auction....
