    The stories in California of the devastating loss of housing from the gas explosion is so sad ..... but locally a dear friend of mine lost her home and contents due to an act of God - a lightening bolt struck their home. They were unable to get renter's insurance and have been homeless for nearly two months. A benefit has been scheduled and I donated this quilt for a raffle.

    This quilt should bring in some real dough for your friend. (I am so sorry this has happened to them.)
    It is very interesting to look at. I like that in a quilt.

    You are a good friend to do this for them. :thumbup:

    I love that quilt and your fabric color choices for it. It could be for either gender so I would think it will do very well in the benefit for your friend. You are an angel in the disguise of a quilter.
