At first I liked this quilt so much that I could hardly give it away, but I'd made a promise, so I kept to it. When I heard that my high school was looking for a quilt to auction for a fund raiser, I offered this one. It was auctioned off at the 2013 Reunion for $500. Then those who'd purchased it thought they could raise even more, so they took it to the Arizona Adventist Camp Meeting, and auctioned it off for $2,000! That's a lot for a little 42x42 quilt like this, but it went for a good cause.
The auction made such a splash that the next year everyone wanted to make a quilt to auction, and there were so many quilts that they didn't get nearly the proceeds that my one lonely quilt had gotten. I heard they were lucky to get $50.00 for a quilt. I count mine "lucky" i.e. blessed, to have brought in so much.
