After making a trip around the world quilt for my goddaughter Fallin, I decided to use the same fabrics to make one for myself. She didn't want any floral prints or animal prints and just black & white. That made it a little difficult to find 7 or 8 different fabrics for the quilt. I had to go to several stores but did find everything we wanted. Several fabrics were polks dots, which I love, so that made my decision to make one for me (oh, and the fact that I love that girl!!).
Shortly after that I heard from a friend in Texas who would be involved in an auction this month. She lost a daughter to spinal muscular atrophy about 5 years ago and is still fighting to find a cure. I volunteered my black & white quilt for the auction. I finally finished it this weekend, and will be sending it to her tomorrow. I picked out more polka dots for the backing, yellow background with multi-colored dots. I love it!!! I hope whoever wins it will love it as much as I do and as much as Fallin loves hers. Here's a picture of it:
