In PQA we have been working on quilts that we donate as Charity Quilts to groups that are trying to raise money. So we donated a quilt to our church that just had a Boy Scout Auction. Actually we donated two quilts to two auctions. The first quilt raised $75.00. Here is a picture of the quilt I put together and quilted. The group sewed the rows together before I did my part. I love this pattern. It is so fun and easy to make. I do not not know how much this quilt raised.
As I was quilting this quilt I had major problems with my thread. The outside of the thread broke and slid up the shaft of the thread. So I ended up with this interesting bunched up thread. I had to unpick so much quilting. But I worked through it and got to were I would quilt for a bit and the thread would do this "thing" and as soon as it did it I would stop. I did finally get it all done. After I was done quilting that quilt and went back to piecing I did not have any more trouble with that spool. Weird!
One of the ladies that is in PQA asked if I would quilt a wall hanging for her for the same auction. I love the way it turned out. I thought of many different ways to do it but I finally used a brown thread that I borrowed to out line everything.
