On an impulse I donated the Continuous Strip quilt to the fund-raising auction at Plowshares, the homeless shelter in town. The coordinator of the event was so thrilled to have it! When I took it over to her I was a little sorry to see it go, mostly because I didn't know if the highest bidder would know or appreciate what they had.
I didn't attend the auction-dinner event, but imagine how delighted I was when the coordinator called me the following week. "The person with the high bid for your quilt was a quilter! She was just so thrilled to get it, she kept saying, 'Oh the colors, they're *my* colors, it's like she *knew*. Thank you so much!'"
