Here she is!

I finished up this lovely just about 15 minutes ago!  So nice to see her complete.  This is the second quilt made with these fabrics.  These were the leftover scraps.





She measures 66x77.  The great gals at NFQ tied her, and she is ready for this years MCC Sale & Auction!  April 4 & 5 at Fresno Pacific University.  If you have further questions, either email me or leave your question in the comments.

Here are some quick stats in regards to the MCC Sale & Auction.  Dotty figured out how much money our group (the NFQ, North Fresno Quilters)  has been able to help raise since it started back in 1989.  (I have only been a part of this group for 3 yrs.)  At the beginning, they were turning in one 1 quilt a year, now we turn in about 70.  Here is the total.......over $250,000!!  All of that money goes toward disaster relief both here and over seas.  I praise the Lord that I can be a small part of this big picture.

Linking to Finish it up Friday at Crazy Mom Quilts and Can I Get a Whoop! Whoop! at Confessions of a Fabric Addict.

Red and white quilts are the best. I keep meaning to make a two color quilt, but those other pesky colors just keep wanting to creep in.
