Today I am showing off a quilt that is no longer in our possession. I would get a better pictures of the full quilt, but well forgot too while we had it. Both of my boys are both diagnosed with Aspergers Syndrome, a high functioning form of Autism. Jared goes to Spectrum Academy, a school specializing in its help for kids on the autism spectrum. Last year we donated a quilt you can see it here to the Autism Gala they hold once a year as a fundraiser for their school. We were pleased how much it went for (it was the first sold item we ever made).
This year my wife is trying to up our score, we have made yet another puzzle quilt but this time we used the fabric line Pieces of Hope which is a line by Riley Blake to support the Autism Cause. This fabric line is fantastic. Tanya for Christmas last year received from me a FQ bundle of this and we were able to make 2 quilts out of it (the second one is in the pile of quilts that need quilting).
We even made a tag for the back listing our name and the quilts name. The Gala is this Thursday, I can't wait to see how much this one raises this year.
I have been a slacker the last few weeks at making posts, but I have been busy. I have been working off and on, on my Gray and Orange quilt project.
This weekend I took my bag of grays and started sewing them together. I have a ton of strips now. As you can see my basket is full of them, now to iron and then sew them into blocks.
