I had a request for a blanket that I had already made but after I saw the baby in his bright yellow, hip, newborn ducky sleeper I knew the blanket my dear friend had picked out was not going to work. So I made another blanket.(the one you are seeing) out of some scraps. I left her both of the blankets so she could pick. If she picks the other one I will be shocked. I'll keep you posted. You have to admit that is quite a solid name.

This was one of my first quilts that never seemed to find a home, so I donated it to a an organization named S.O.A.R. They make sure a neignborhooed in Chicago stays extremely nice. It was a silent auction (my first) so of course we kept going over and sneaking to see who or if anyone bid on it. The bidding started at $75.00. the final bid was $150.00. I wanted to see who bought it because every time someone bid on it the other person bid it. They must have really liked it. This quilt needed a home and now it has one. I know I feel better already. A woman at this "gala" picked up my card and wants a T-shirt quilt made for her husband with his runner T-shirts. Yae a new quilting adventure.
When I look at this quilt I see that I was dong improvisational patchwork before I even knew what it was called.
I like this one too!
