Both auction quilts are done.  Same pattern, very different quilts!  (The link for the pattern we used is here:)  I thought it was really interesting how the secondary,  diagonal design comes through more with the citrus-colored one than the pind-and-red one.  I also really liked how our quilter, Sonja, rounded the corners on that one. 

The auction is Thursday.  Hoping they bring in a lot of money.  (Or at least what we spent.  Which is always a challenge with quilts, y'know?)

Near my city, women have been seen sleeping in dumpsters.   Yes, even here, in Seattle's suburbs.

And so Sophia Way was born for this.  I believe it's the Seattle Eastside's first (and I think only?) shelter for single, homeless women. 

They're doing a charity auction this month.  This is one of the two quilts our little quilt group is donating.  I've pieced probably 2/3 of this one, so it kind of feels like my baby.  And now baby is ready to head off to the house of the longarm quilter. 

Pray with me that it will bless Sophia Way and the women they serve.
