Thanks to Park City Girl for hosting the Blogger’s Quilt Festival. This is a fun online quilt festival that is a delightul virtual quilt show. You can view all the quilts in one sitting, or pace your self and view a few at a time.
Contestants are asked to post a photo on their blogsite of the quilt they wish to exhibit in the Blogger’s Quilt Festival and share insights about their quilt.
Park City Girl does a fantastic job organizing this show and I wanted to join the fun and enter one of my quilts. But which quilt should I show? It took me a few minutes to conclude, that while I’ve recently posted about this particular quilt (http://tiny.cc/XbBO), I wanted to be able to share more insights about this quilt, thus I concluded it was the quilt that I would enter in this Festival.
This quilt was made with the purpose of raising funds for Susan G. Komen For The Cure. It is currently part of an opportunity quilt raffle, whereby donations of $25 (or any increment of 25) will be entered into the drawing. To clarify, donate $250 to Komen and you will be entered into the drawing to win this quilt. I have more insights about the steps to enter this quilt raffle in my prior post, but if you have any questions, please feel free to email me directly. And, if you know of anyone that might be interested in this opportunity fundraiser, where 100% of the proceeds go directly to Komen, please feel free to share this post with them.
This quilt measures 58”x73”. It was made with with beautiful red, green & cream fabrics and machine quilted with a pointsettia quilt motif.
I’m passionate about fighting breast cancer. This isn’t a disease that only attacks old woman. There are many young ladies that get breast cancer, as well as men. We need more awareness, assurance that everyone can get treatment, and we need to find a Cure! As such, I fully support Susan G. Komen For The Cure’s efforts and appreciate everyone’s efforts who help in this cause!
