Hi all! After many trials and tribulations keeping me from starting and then finishing this quilt, it is finally complete! In an earlier post I was looking for ideas for a fundraiser for a child in our community with a brain tumor ( http://www.craftster.org/forum/index.php?topic=350930.0 ). I was hoping to make many small things, but decided to go with one big thing and a few small things (perhaps I will post the small things some other time). Anywho, all fabrics including the batting and backing, are from my stash. It is quilted in matching orange thread around each section and approx 2" away from the black flange (omg, the flange was so much fun!) around the entire quilt. The backing is the same orange as the binding, I believe it was either red rooster or blank... or something. Anywho, I hope all you seasoned quilters can appreciate it as much as I do.

Now, how much should I have them price it for? I guess I should mention it is toddler/small throw size.

In progress:

Here is a link to the lil boy's website if anyone would like to learn more, or perhaps donate.


I have a ton of NEW sewing patterns to swap. What do you have?

I think it's great! I love the bright vibrant fabrics - it's full of energy.

It's so generous of you to donate your time and talents to such a worthy cause.

That is a great quilt, and my prayers are with that little boy and his family. As a mom of a childhood cancer survivor, I think it's wonderful that you are using your talents to help!! God bless you.
