    Using up some excess fabric and blocks from a raffle quilt

    About 4 years ago one of my quilt guilds made a teal and brown raffle quilt for the Make-a-Wish foundation. I was a new quilter at the time, but I joined the committee making the quilt because I wanted to learn from the other members. And wow, did I learn a lot! We had quite a few extra blocks and excess fabric when the project was finished, and I purchased the extras at one of our rummage/fabric sales last year. It turned out that many of the blocks didn't measure true (which I already knew), so I took them all apart, purchased more fabric (of course I did!) and made another quilt with the same pattern used for the raffle quilt. I used almost all of the guild's leftover fabric, but there wasn't enough of that to complete the quilt. I found a teal and brown fabric on sale at Fabric Depot, bought 12 yards of it and used it for the setting triangles, outer border, binding, backing, and in some of the blocks - now it's all used up! Here's the result. It's about 100" square, 12" blocks. There's a description of the blocks and a picture of the original raffle quilt here - sorry I don't remember the name of the pattern. info about my guild's "Make a Wish" quilt
