Auction Quilts

Of course I did not use time over Christmas break to work on (better stated . . . "To start on") three quilts I am making for our schools auction.  Last weekend I pieced all three quilt tops.  The handprint quilt I make for my pre-kindergarten class.  My goal is that it brings in more money than I spent on it.
I've made two autograph quilts (see below) for my daughter's grade--one for each class.  It is turning out better than anticipated.  The reality is that the three quilts MAY bring in $250 or so dollars for the school.  Spending twice the amount of time doing things a little better will not increase this profit. 

My husband always uses a phrase which I really cannot stand, but which fits this situation--"It is what it is."
