Quilts in Common

Welcome to our quilting world!

The Silent Auction Collabrative Quilt

My friend and I made a quilt together! It was for a silent auction fundraiser for a school.

Begonia Baskets with class

Let me tell you the story…..

First, my friend traced handprints of every student in her class onto brightly colored fabric. She cut them out and appliquéd them into baskets- Begonia baskets!

I added several pieced borders using the same fabrics as the handprints.

Here is the progression…… first four patches, then HST’s,

Begonia Baskets3

Begonia Baskets5

Begonia Baskets6

It got bigger, and bigger!

I had fun quilting all sorts of fun stuff into it- the class’ memory verse, the names of the students on their handprints, and more!! I hope it raises some money for the school 🙂
