4-H Quilt




One of the local quilters, Sally, finally succumbed to annual requests to donate a quilt to the local 4-H. There is a Junior Fair in our little town every year where the 4-H shows off their farm animals. They have a couple of auctions, regular and silent auction, during the fair. In the past, she has seen apple pies go for as much as $300 in the regular auction. Sally will give one of her quilts to the silent auction to benefit the 4H. She is afraid that her quilt will sell for some ridiculously low price. When she told me about it, I thought it was so generous of her to donate her time and fabric to such a worthwhile cause. So I asked her if I could donate my quilting to the project. I used Paisley Playtime from Lorien Quilting in the body and Chantilly Lace by Norma Sharp in the outer border and corners. I used Superior King Tut DeNile thread top and bobbin. The batting is Soft & Bright by Warm. Sally was very pleased with it.

I'll tell you how much 4-H gets for the quilt after the fair.

Update: The quilt sold for $638 at the auction; all of the proceeds go to the 4H club here in Ramona.

My life has changed in the last couple of years - some bumps, I retired from quilting, and then I moved to Texas. I'm anxious to see what new adventures await me in the next phase of my life.
