As some of you may remember, each Fall at Alpha Phi's Red Dress Gala they host an auction to raise money for heart health through the Alpha Phi Foundation. My contribution to the auction is a tshirt quilt. The first year I made a complete quilt from extra shirts the chapter had but we realized that if instead we auctioned a coupon/certificate for a quilt to be made from someone's shirts, then attendees who are members of other organizations could bid on it too!
I knew I would be busier than usual so I had put in the auction (October 2014) that I couldn't start until January 2015. The auction was won by a guy named Rian who is a chapter advisor for one of the fraternities at Florida Tech, Delta Tau Delta. Rian turned out to be pretty busy too so I got the shirts from him in February but I didn't finish it until late April and then he came to pick it up in early May. That was right at the time I was doing my Women in Science & Engineering research project at work so I had less time than usual for quilting and I even forgot to take pics of the finished product!! Here's all I got before I gave it to him...
