FFA DONATION QUILT

The FFA Donation Quilt I've been working on for The FFA Booster Club Valentine's Dance was finished just in time for the Silent Auction Saturday Night. 

Unfortunaley, in my haste, I failed to take pictures of the finished quilt.  I might be able to get one later as I know the successful bidder.  I used a Superior Thread called Honey on most of the quilt to quilt it and a Red Superior Thread to quilt the rest.  There are horseshoes in the outer border, stars, barbed wire, cross hatching, and Texas stars quilted on the middle of the quilt.  I was very pleased with the outcome. 

It brought $500 during the live auction, a nice sum of money for the Booster Club.  Many thanks to Domingo Perez at Diamond P Enterprises Inc. (and my boss at my part-time job) for winning the bid on it.  The proceeds from the quilt, as well as the proceeds for the other items donated for the silent auction will be used for scholarships for the FFA  kids.  The Silent Auctin was also a great success.  A huge thank you to all the folks who helped set up,  bought tickets for the steak dinner/dance, donated items, and bid on items.  We couldn't do it without you. Thank you for investing in our kids.
