Festival of Trees auction

Here in Utah, we have the annual
festival of trees, which raises money
 
The festival has traditionally had
decorated Christmas trees for auction
to raise funds. Over the years they
have added wreathes, table centerpieces,
gingerbread houses,a craft booth and
sweet shoppe.
 
Now they also have a quilt auction.
This year, my quilter, Diane, and I
donated a quilt
 
 
I forgot to get a photo of it before it
went to the auction, so I friend snapped
a photo at the auction Tuesday night.

 
It's a crazy 9-patch block done in
all sorts of Christmas prints with
a solid green binding. I haven't
received the final word, but friends
that were at the auction said it
went for at least $475.
 
I'm already looking forward to next
year...what quilt will I make?

(This quilt was part of my 12 UFO's in 2012
project...another one done! yahoo!)

Love your quilt. the colors are just great! Did you wash it before donating it? I'm never sure about that. I love the way they look but I don't want anyone to think they are used. Thanks.
