Good evening quilters …
This evening I had a call from a volunteer for the Cancer Center. She graciously asked if we would be willing to donate a quilt or two to be auctioned at their November 13 fund raiser. I told her that time was her biggest enemy, but that we have supported the Cancer Center in the past and might be willing to help out.
She understands the time constraint (I think). She indicates that a large bed-size quilt, although a nice option, would not be necessary – a throw or even a wall hanging would be acceptable. It (they) should a quilt(s) that would attract bidders, though.
Do any of you individually or in your friendship groups have interest to make a quilt for this event? Please respond back to me this week if you do. As you know, I will be out of the country for two weeks, so I very much need to hand this off to someone else (volunteer???).
Well, I responded back with pictures of both the pastel and the bright batik quilts I had just finished, I offered one of them and let them choose which one... they chose the bright one. Now let me say we have a fairly large and active guild, they had many many people offer quilts.
Mine was one of 3 chosen!!! I was thrilled, I mean here I am giving away one of my all time favorite quilts and I feel like I won the lottery! Plus I am thrilled to be able to help out such a great cause!
So the lady from the Cancer Center will be here next week to pick up the quilt, I am going to make a label for it just stating the maker (me) and the date, I would also like to add the quilt name so PLEASE help me out and suggest names! If you want to see more pictures and a close up of the quilting just click the link.
Well that's all for today,
Thanks for stopping by!
