"Sunbonnet Sue" donated to Peppers & Pinatas Silent Auction

Once again the Blanketeers came through with another lovely donation for the Peppers & Piñatas silent auction.  Didn't "Sue" turn out beautifully well?  Thanks again to everyone who worked on the quilt, especially Virginia, who put the quilt together and bound it, and Karen, who donated the gorgeous machine quilting.
I'm sure everyone who worked on making the Sunbonnet Sue blocks will never forget the project day where I "taught" everyone how to applique.  What a laugh.  Talk about the blind leading the blind!  It was lots of fun though, and we ended up with such a pretty quilt for our trouble.

"Peppers and Piñatas is an event hosted by Mental Health America of Greater Tarrant County.  Proceeds from the evening will broaden support for the Warrior Support Program designed for military, police, fire, paramedics, and their families in need of mental health services."
