SILENT AUCTION AND A FINISH

Every year at my daughters school, they hold a huge fundraiser.  It's a dinner and auction with a live auctioneer. These dinners are a lot of fun. It's easy to get swept up in the emotion while bidding : )
Last year, I donated a "Ready for Baby" basket for their silent auction table. This year they asked me to do the same.  I had fun filling this tub, and I hope it fetches some serious coin.  There is everything that a new baby might need, from a quilt and bed sheet, right down to the diapers and wipes.


I got the binding on my Moroccan Tiles quilt.  Linda and I talked about the quilting on it, and I am so happy we went with the squiggly lines.  It's heavily quilted, and I love it! Thanks Linda




The rest of today will be spent writing instructions for the projects for this months Moda club meeting. 
Have a great rest of your day : )

Good luck with your donation to the silent auction. What a great idea!
I do agree with you about the quilting on the Moroccan Tiles. It is perfect. It reminds me of mosaics.
Your quilt looks wonderful.
