|This is what it looked like when it left my house as a flimsy.|
|One of my friends from my old quilt guild volunteered to quilt it on her long-arm machine.|
|She also added the binding by machine.|
My friend who attended the fundraiser (which is a fabulous dinner and dancing plus silent auction and live auction) videotaped the auctioning of the quilt for me. I was on pins and needles watching.
Nine hundred and fifty dollars!?! I'll be honest - I started to cry. I'm so humbled. I hope that whoever won the bid loves the quilt and that it brings him/her many years of comfort and warmth. And, more importantly, I hope that the money it raised helps someone make a new, violence-free start in her life.
