It's That Time of Year

Each year around this time you'll find me with a quilt to bind for the annual Silent Auction.  Each year the Lydia Circle of the United Methodist Church at Wentzville offers up a quilt to be auctioned.  The monies we raise goes toward our various mission donations within the church and our community.
This year we did a whole cloth.

Through out the year we get many donations from the community.  The donations are used in various ways.  Some things we sell at the Festival of Sharing Quilt Show.  Some we use for quilt tops. This year in a donation we found this whole cloth kit.  The kit was unopened, I guess someone changed their mind.  We had never offered a whole cloth quilt for auction, so decided to give it a try. 

This Queen Anne Star took many hours and lots of thread.  The outcome is beautiful.   We're all anxious to see how the congregation  reacts to our quilt this year.  I'll post the results of the auction in a few weeks.  Happy Quilting!
