A Finish Donated to Kya's Krusade

This quilt was a Mystery Quilt and a kit, so I didn't choose the pattern or the fabric.  LOL  For those who don't know, I used monthly mystery quilts at my local quilt shop to learn to sew.  It went well, but I have a bunch of mystery quilts (in various stages of completion) that just aren't my taste in either pattern or color.  I have given several to my mom, but this is the first quilt I have donated to anything.  I hope that it gets some decent money at their auction to help the kids.

On the left, you can see the front (sorry about the pictures.  I took them at work with my cell phone just before the rep took them for donation) and on the right, I flipped it a bit so you could see the backing I chose for this quilt (the only part of the quilt that was my decision, LOL).
