Finished!


My Bits of Baltimore auction donation is finished and will be in the mail this afternoon!!!  Click on the link below for more info...

You would all like some photos of my block.  It is completely untraditional and features fabrics hand dyed by Sharon Schamber and my husband.  
It took me 6 months of weekends and evenings to complete. It's the first piece I have hand quilted in almost 10 years.  I hope it raises lots of cash for a great cause!

Until next time...
