I donated this quilt for a benefit for some friends' granddaughters' education fund. I was absolutely flabbergasted when my friend told me it brought $550. I'm so glad it brought that much and I'm flattered two people wanted it enough to bid it up that high. WOW!!!!

I hand pieced it about ten years ago because I had to hand piece at least one quilt to get hand piecing out of my system. It's either a small double bed quilt or a large twin size quilt.

I have no idea the name of the pattern. It just seemed like a good idea.

I can see why it garnered so much attention, it is lovely and a very patriotic choice of colors. I believe the pattern is called Seven Sisters.

Hand piecing -- I think whomever bought it got quite a bargain!!!
