this is my second attempt, this is a lap quilt I'm doing for a raffle for our volunteer fire dept


It sold for $250.00, I think it would have brought more if I'd been there but I had to work that day ( I work everyday!)

The event brought in $23000.00 even after expenses it will have been a huge sucess

What a cool quilt! I absolutely love the colors and the way the centers of the squares pop out! I am sure it will raise a lot of money. What a cool thing for you to do.
