Tis' the Season for Giving: Oranges & Plums Lap Quilt

"Oranges & Plums," 38" x 56", handmade by Pam Geisel, Dec. 2016

For the month of December the Island Batik Ambassador's are celebrating the "Season of Giving" by making quilts to be donated to a charity or cause of our choice. I made this lap/throw-sized quilt using some multi-colored and purple 10" x 10" squares that came with our last fabric shipment and I added some oranges from a few other collections.

I am donating this quilt to to an annual event that raises funds for the Antioch School, a private elementary school in Yellow Springs, Ohio. 

The school encourages children to pursue their innate curiosity. Children are our future and not all learn by traditional methods. Their fund raising event is on Sat., Mar. 4, 2017 and this quilt will be a part of their silent auction.

Very pretty! Great cause, too. I hope it raises lots of money for the school.
