I recently donated this king size Batik quilt to be used at a silent auction fundraiser for The Bockman Foundation. It is a non-profit charity that helps people with spinal cord injuries. I got a thank you email informing me that the quilt sold for $600. I then found out that the people who bought the quilt re-donated it to another silent auction fundraiser for a family with 3 young children that tragically lost their father. I hope that my quilt brings at least another $600 for that unfortunate family.
It has been a while since I’ve posted any updates. I’ve finally finished the FMQ on Shoji Screen. It has been on my FAL list every quarter this year so hopefully I will get the binding on and have it as a 3rd quarter finish.
Urban Windows is a finished quilt top. I have a week of vacation starting on September 1st so I hope to get it on the frame then. I am so glad that I finally decided to play with my quick curve ruler. Coincidentally, Sew Kind of Wonderful has a new QAL starting the first week of September using the QCR and their Curve It Up pattern. I’m looking forward to participating.
I took a picture of the quilt top before and after the sashing and borders were added. It wasn’t until I was editing the pictures on my laptop that I realized I had missed putting the top and bottom borders on….so it was back to the sewing machine. I forgot to take another pictures after the missing borders were added.
Instead of finishing one of my WIP, I foolishly decided to start a new quilt. I’m my own worst enemy. It is Leftovers IV using fabric leftover from my Blue Odyssey quilt. It’s my first time trying a string block. They sure go together quickly.

Today I am joining the 2014 Pets on Quilts blog hop. Tilly loves to “help” by sitting in the middle of any and every quilt that I try to hand sew the binding on. She is so darn cute and flirty when she does it that I don’t have the heart to kick her off. Here are just a few of the many quilts her hairy, little body has graced.
She even likes to “help” with the piecing:
Wally and Tango thought they should be included in the blog hop too:
