A FUND RAISING DONATION FOR COMPLETE KIDS CHILD CARE

I made this quilt in a Carol Lewis class over in Gisborne a few years back. When Quilters Bazaar was there. It was a round robin quilt.. But the twist was that it was your own quilt.
We had to make a certain size centre for our first gathering.
Next month was a triangle border followed by an applique border. Next was a curved border. The size  and design of borders was up to you. I did get it finished and it has been sitting around for the right moment. I gave it to my daughter for her business to donate it to the childcare to be Auctioned for a fundraiser. I still have to find out how much was raised.

I love the curved  borders. It's not really curved. They are folded squares then the fold is stitched down to make it look like a curve..
