Scrap Challenge Adventure . . . Quilt on a Mission!

A couple of months or so ago I came across Fabric n' Quilts Scrap Quilt Challenge on Facebook.  Since I had a scrap quilt in the works for quite some time and my scrap bins were literally bulging at the seams I decided, hey, why not enter the challenge.  The quilt had to be completed by February 28th and I work really well under a deadline... so, game on!

Well, let me tell you ... it was a challenge!  When I started I needed 22 more 12" pineapple blossom blocks to complete the center and still had to decide how to frame it.   It has been fun, but also work!

Now, for an interesting wrinkle.   While I was working on this I felt strongly impressed that this quilt is to be used to raise funds for a missionary friend who is about to return to Indonesia.  End result... this is now a Quilt on a Mission and on March 30th some lucky person is going  to win this gorgeous quilt and my friend, Christina, will have her much needed living expenses!  (by the way, tickets are just $5 & you can let me know if you would like a ticket!)

Until next time!
