St. Catherine's Commission

I recently finished a big commission for St. Catherine's School in Richmond. Every fall they have an auction to raise money for the school. The second graders (who are now rising third graders) all created blocks which I made into a quilt. In the center I appliqued the St. Catherine's daisy logo, and hand embroidered the name of the school and the grade the girls were in. I quilted the whole thing with daisies. On the back is patterened Minkee fabric (again with daisies)! This quilt is a whopping 84 x 100 inches (queen size) and had deluxe batting on the inside. And yes, I did the whole thing on my home machine!
