I used two vintage prints (one 36" and one 44") for the backing.
quilts donated to fundraisers came up on one of the online groups. I like to get bargains at silent auctions, too, so why should I begrudge the person who gets one of my quilts for (a lot) less than the time and effort I may have put into it? The organization or agency is the beneficiary. I am flattered by admiring comments on my workmanship. And what do I gain from stockpiling quilts in my basement? I'm going to keep making quilts because otherwise I will drown in fabric.
I'm nearly finished quilting Spare Parts IV.
I am auditioning Jeweled Windows blocks made by the ALA Biblioquilters. I'm expecting a few more blocks to come in.

P.S. Judy's comment prompted me to remember this example of unappreciation:
When I was active in the Maine Library Assn. I donated needlepoint pillows to the scholarship auction at the annual conference. One year the guest speaker (a well-known, award-winning children's author) bought one of them. I sat next to her at the banquet and commented that I was pleased she'd won it. She dismissively said, "I had to bid on something." I refrained from a snarky response. [It was so long ago that "snarky" hadn't been coined!] Ever since when I've seen a copy of her best-known book I recall that encounter.
