Back to the quilt. I love the colors and the supreme softness of the flannel. I quilted it by machine and did the binding by machine as well.
Here is my husband holding it up while I am telling him not to let me see his feet or fingers.
The only real problem I had with the quilt, besides putting myself under such a time constraint, is that the gray hounds-tooth flannel stretched when pressed or stitched. I trimmed it down but some stretchiness still sneaked through to the final project. See how the point didn't match at all on this corner?
Even though we are into spring, I thought it a bit ironic that I was taking a photo of a flannel quilt with snow in the background.
"What was the final auction price?" you may be wondering. My friend Malia bought it for $100. Thank you, Malia.
Do you remember the sunflower cake from my last post? It went for $25.
I purchased a few things myself at auction. My daughter bid (and I paid) on a garden weeding service thinking that she wouldn't have to do it. It was only two hours worth so she was a little disappointed. I also purchased this beautiful coconut cake. Can you believe a 13 year old decorated this? The flowers are marshmallows. It is lovely.
The auction was successful! Have fun at summer camp. And take a quilt. It's going to be cold!
