Charity Auction Quilts

by the Sewhatevers

Members and small groups have been busy making and donating quilts to Lawrence area fundraisers. This one will be auctioned off for the benefit of Kansas Advocates for Better Care, a group that works for residents of care homes.

Their Stand By Me event will be October 23 at the Marriott Suites in Lawrence.

The challenge was to take a large scale print, cut the same star points from different parts of the print and choose a background.
