With 17 hours to spare, the class auction project is finished. Phew!
Many people asked me why I took this on. Here's the skinny:
1. I enjoy quilting. There is something magical about the creative process, seeing fabric evolve into something meaningful, tweaking the elements until it's just right. (Here's a dirty little secret of mine: every one of the 30-something quilts I've made has one mistake it in. It just turns out that way. I never fix it because I consider it part of the charm. I actually thought this quilt might be the exception but then Thing 2 pointed my error out last night.)
2. I am competitive and hope that this brings in more money than any other class auction project this year. The thing is, the project itself is only part of the equation. It all depends whose child falls in love with it and if their parents have enough disposable income to procure it at any cost.
3. I've done class auction projects for my other two children's classes and so this makes things equal.
4. I want to contribute to our school's fiscal well-being.
And so it's done. I should sleep well tonight.
