    I started this quilt for me but turned into a raffle quilt for the school I work for. It burnt to the ground on December 15, 2011. But last night at the raffle/auction it is estimated to have brought in over $1000.00. I was so excited and humbled.
    Here are some pictures. I graphed out the pattern from a picture i took and then used Big Stitch quilting to give it a vintage/primitive look!

    Should have said December 15, 2010. Is the edit button gone, couldn't find it to change my original post.
