Quilt Block Finished for Charity Fundraiser

Our community has recently revived the local quilting guild - yes!  Even after the old guild disbanded, a group of dedicated quilters continued to put together a queen-sized quilt to raffle off, with a winner's name drawn at the annual Northern Rockies Folk Festival. What a better venue to raffle off a hand-made quilt made entirely from volunteers than at a folk festival, right?

Well, this year I've made a quilt block to include for the quilt top. The theme this year is "Flowers of the Mountains".  With that theme I simply had to make a block!

So here it is:
 It's a radiant sunflower made out of batiks. And it was such to make it. I got the pattern from Castilleja Cotton. Diane was great to work with - I needed the pattern in a hurry, and she obliged and sent me the pattern as a download. Isn't technology wonderful!


I can't wait to see the completed quilt. There will be 20 flower blocks, with proceeds going to support a local women's charity. Such a worthy cause, and such fun to be a part of it this year!

Have you been involved in any charity projects this year?
