It's going.... going....

Tonight is the night of the auction for Diva's school, so I thought I would finally show the quilt. I hope it was worth the wait!

The quilt blocks were designed by middle school students, colored by a high school senior, printed onto fabric and then hand embroidered by parents, staff, and friends. 

Custom fabric with the auction's artwork and logo was created for the backing. 

A close up of one of the blocks and quilting-- a swirling meander with random horse shoes.

I also made a small throw pillow. On one side was the custom fabric. On the other we embroidered "2013" and the names of all the middle school artists.


  1. Great idea for an auction quilt! How special to have so many students and staff involved in it too!

  2. Fabulous quilt - it was interesting to read about the design process too! Thanks so much for linking up this week.

  3. Wow, what an amazing quilt. I hope the auction goes well!

  4. Oh wow what a fabulous quilt, and so original and special with all those contributors. Good luck with the auction!


I can't wait to hear from you!
