quilt by number

I just finished this baby quilt for the auction at the school fall festival. 4 other quilt tops are sitting at my sewing machine, begging for attention. But they don't have October deadlines. Those 4 deadlines have long since passed, as the recipients are pretty much no longer babies anymore. Including my own. Whatev.
I hope people bid on it.  If they don't, I'll be bidding on my own quilt. That'll be most embarrassing.
 I really have a thing for typography.
Pattern: Yellow Brick Road
Fabric:  Mix of American Jane prints

What a generous donation! I'd totally bid lots of dollahs.

I would totally bid on your quilt! I don't think you'll have a problem there. But I understand wanting to bid on it yourself. I'm the same way. Like when I go to cooking group, I usually end up just wanting to eat more of what I brought, because I like it. Duh, that's why I brought it!

p.s. When I first started typing my comment, Emily's wasn't there, and now it looks like I copied her! No, we're just clearly related, and totally like the word totally.

absolutely love it. pretty much guaranteed there will be a fight in the parking lot over this quilt after the auction is over (like there was at our school over a quilt for auction).

amyraye,
like a fight over who was the rightful owner?

Sarah said...

duh, what other kind of auction argument would there be?

Sarah said...

did you make the quilt amy?

Angie said...

Very cute quilt. Thanks for including the pattern and fabric. Very smart. People like me like to know those sorts of things. You introduced that pattern to me and I love it. You are super cute!

Really am digging that quilt... now, I wish I was gonna be at the Fall Festival!!! :)

Erin said...

They'd be crazy not to bid on it. LOVE it!

erin said...

I WILL be bidding on it, no worries. Too bad I know I will have some stiff competition (I mean besides you).

Okay, this definitely my favorite quilt that I've seen on your blog, ever. I absolutely love it. I would buy it in a minute if I could. Sarah, how do you do it? Taking care of twin babies AND quilting like this? I'll bet you get tired of people asking you that question, but we really want to know. How much you can accomplish with six kids almost crosses over from impressive to weird. :)

Jennifer said...

I meant "this IS definitely." Sorry.

Sarah, it was so fun to meet you the other night. And I must say, WOW, you are very talented! And I agree with the other commenter, how in the world can you quilt with six kids and twins!? When I saw your family picture I had to double count because I would have never guessed you had that many kids (too young, too in shape ;) Anyway, thanks for saying hi!

Once again, an amazing quilt! I'll definitely be bidding on it! I doubt I'll be the winner though...Justin would have to get a 2nd job to pay for how much it'll probably go for!

This is absolutely amazing!!! I see YOU all over it. Love your talent.

OK, I am cleaning out lots of stuff and I came across some pics and the sweetest note from you. I have copy it for you. But not over the "air". I should know and keep track of it, but can you email me? I'd love to text you a pic of it too actually. dustin.jen@verizon.net
Thanks !!!
