A friend made this quilt as a fundraiser. It sold for nearly $5,000. All proceeds provided a patient, including a dialysis machine, to sail on a cruise ship for a week's paid vacation. All of the T-shirts in this quilt are Harley Davidson Alaska designs. So cool! The backing fabric was skulls (wearing do rags) and crossbones. She makes these every year for fundraisers, and I get to quilt them!

BTW, it was GY-mondo HUGE! I think it was like 125" x 90"

She said last year's quilt went for nearly the same amount. The people that bid on this annual event already have the $$ ready and they know they are ready to throw down the cash! :)

Some things.... money is no object. The folks at these fundraisers... it's not about how much they pay, it's about how much they raise.

Wonderful that it raises so much money! Great quilt! I can just barely see the quilting in this picture, but I'm sure it's beautifully done! Very cool quilt!

Thanks everyone. The photo does not do it justice.

I did e2e freehand swirls (looks like waves / water) and I used a variegated King Tut with blue, green and purple in it. Turned out pretty (and was quilt to quilt, too)
