    Very pretty quilt. Looks inspired by Jenny Beyer's Moonglow quilt, only instead of Mariner's Compass blocks you put in S&W blocks. Love the bright green.

    What do they do with the quilts?
    How many have you guys made?
    Landlords have a large charity (not sure about rules naming names????) and the quilt is part of their fund-raising...so the quilts are raffled off each year.....I'm not sure how much they make on them...we aren't privy to that info...so far the guild members have made seven quilts, with one in the planning stages now....

    I was just thinking that this would be a wonderful way to bless the library where my guild meets for meetings and a monthly work day. They could then auction the item and use the funds for what ever project they had on their to-do list. Great idea and a most stunning quilt.

    Your beautiful quilt is indeed worth the rent and to think that a charity benefits from your talent is a double win.
    In my dream world, fabric is free and sewing makes you thin.

    Absolutely gorgeous quilt. It is a win win situation for both sides-you get rent paid and the landlord receives a beautiful gift.
