quilt for auction

We are so lucky to be able to send the girls to a -really- good school. A school so good that we can't afford it.

We are pretty sure we're the reason they started offering financial aid. And we might just be the sole beneficiaries of the fall fundraiser golf tournament.

It's an important role to have- reminding rich people that other people are like them in many ways, except for not having lots of money. But it also means that we are late with our tuition more often than anyone else, and cause more headaches for the office staff than other families probably do.

Since we can't contribute to the school financially, when the spring fundraising auction came around, I offered to make a quilt.

And this is it.

A coin quilt, made from scraps from the stash, and backed in vintage sheeting. A time crunch meant I was justified in buying binding instead of making my own (hurrah! I HATE making binding) and so that process went faster than usual. I'm happy with the way it turned out and I hope it raises some "thanks for being cool with our poverty" money for our school.

I can't wait to see how much your quilt goes for in the auction...more than I could afford, I'm sure.

It's beautiful.

Absolutely gorgeous. Can't imagine where you found the time. With three little ones time can be as precious or more than money.
