I finished the donation quilt for Girls Incorporated of San Antonio in one week! Huzzah! Perfect timing since I am supposed to drop it off on Friday for their upcoming raffle. Girls Incorporated is a national organization that "Inspires all girls to be strong, smart, and bold." Yes! That is a mission statement I can get behind. They also offer an amazing summer camp for girls that focuses on STEM subjects. As a woman in the STEM field (I teach astronomy labs and physical science teacher prep classes), this is something I vehemently support! Hence, volunteering to donate a quilt.
Anyways, here is the quilt in question. I'm calling it "Astronomical Twilight." It is 48" x 60" in size, so decent throw/lap quilt sized. A list of the fabrics I used and my planning are over here.
And here is a shot of the backing. It is only 48" wide, so I decided the way to waste the least amount of fabric would be to use one WOF strip that had some scraps from the front pieced to the side.
I decided that this quilt needed a label, just in case the person who wins it gets curious about where it came from. But I have never added a label. So I made this extra star and was planning on embroidering some basic info on it and piecing it into the backing.
...But I was so in-the-zone when I started on the backing that I completely forgot about it. So I had to sharpie in the info on the very bottom corner of the backing. Oh well. The good news is that I will never know who ends up with it, and they will hopefully love it anyways!
