i wish i could come up with a much cooler name for this quilt, but i can't.
my siblings have gone to music camp for years, and this was year two of the camp deciding to have a quilt raffle to help raise money.
after trying to draw up inspiration, and then seeing waggonswest's alphabet blues quilt, i just loved the triangle idea.  i found a "quilt along" put on by the sassy quilter, and followed her directions as to how to achieve this quilt in a lap-ish size.  i followed the same quilting lines as waggonswest, and whelp.  here is the end result! (complete with cat fur that just would NOT go away)




as always, more (bigger) photos for this quilt over on it's own blog post.  click here for that!

Very nicely done, and wonderful that you took the time to assist with the raffle. I am a musician, and would be proud to display this in my home. I will bet it bids quick! Good luck. I hope it brings some much needed funding!

thanks!
at camp, they do two raffles now for raising money.
one being the "golden baton" to lead the band in a song, the other now being the quilt.
from what i hear, the baton pulled in about $100 in ticket sales, but the quilt got around $300 in sales
always good to hear it got a great response from parents of the campers!
