I had an odd number of squares to work with so I put one on the back and I also used part of a duvet cover I bought on sale from Urban Outfitters for the backing....I still have enough to make a couple more lap quilts from that duvet!:) Yes, we still have plenty of snow on the ground!
I did some wavy line quilting down the middle and on the sides but didn't want that on the awesome corners so I....I can't believe I did this...but I outline the corner squares! The binding is lovely white dots on black...perfect to frame this quilt.
Some of the donated quilts will be photographed for a Quilt Calendar and in October all of them will be auctioned off on ebay and all the proceeds will go to the Susan G. Komen Cancer Research. Now it is time for me to pack this quilt up and mail it to Texas.
I am honored to have been able to help out and I do so in honor of my mom and mom-in-law who are survivors and my new pal Lynne of Oz who is knocking that crap out of her system right now!! YeeeeHaaaaa!! And thanks to all my fellow quilters at ORBC....you all ROCK!!:)
