After much anticipation, we present to you the QUILT!

This quilt was designed by Natalie. She picked out the fabric, arranged the pieces, and quilted each square. I sewed the quilted squares together. On the front, the fabric is cotton. On the back, it's cotton flannel.

The batting (the fluffy stuff in the middle of the fabric) is cotton, also. This quilt has been pre-washed to start the "rag" effect. The nature of cotton is to shrink a tad and get softer with each wash. The flannel is a bit "scraggly" looking after a long spin in the dryer, but is super soft and cuddly.

As you can tell, Natalie is all cuddly in it! Of course, as she said, something about flip-flops and being snuggled in a quilt don't go together! Maybe 99 degree weather isn't snuggle in a quilt weather, but wouldn't this make a fun picnic blanket, too? Even if it's a picnic in the living room! The quilt measures 45.5" wide by 52".

Natalie is auctioning this quilt to help raise her portion of money for summer camp. We are going to do this similar to other online auctions. The starting price for the quilt is $25 with free shipping (or local delivery). If you would like to bid on the quilt, please e-mail me directly at   As new bids arrive, I will post them on THIS blog post. We will keep this open until next Saturday night (June 4th). I will announce the winner on Sunday, June 5th. I'll mail it out that week. If you have any questions, please feel free to leave a comment here or e-mail me.

PLEASE share this with anyone who might be interested or might know someone who is interested! Thank you!
