Quilt Giveaway!!

WIN ME!!!

Now I don't usually like to make you jump through hoops to enter/win a giveaway, but I promise this is for a really good cause. As many of you know, my husband has been fighting lymphoma for the past three years. Last year we participated in the Light the Night Walk for the Leukemia & Lymphoma society. It was a wet, cold night, but it was such a wonderful experience. Our team raised over $6,000 to benefit the society. It is a cause very dear to our hearts and without organizations like this, I'm not sure where we would be with John's treatment. So, I made this cross quilt and I am hoping to raise money for our walk this year.

WIN ME!!!


Quilt Details: Measures approximately 41"x40" and is made with 100% cotton designer fabrics from Denyse Schmidt, Joel Dewberry, and Amy Butler. The white background fabric is Kona Solids in Snow. The batting is 100% cotton and the quilt is backed with a tangerine polka dot print by Amy Butler. It is lightly quilted with diagonal lines. This quilt is the perfect size for a baby quilt, a lap quilt, or for a picnic. 

WIN ME!!!

To enter to win is very simple. For every $5 donation to our team, you'll receive 1 entry. For instance, if you donate $15, you will receive 3 entries, donate $25 and receive 5 entries, etc. Please follow the link below to make your donation and then leave a comment with contact info here letting me know your donation is completed.You will not have to say your donated amount as I will see it on my fundraising page. Because I want to raise as much as possible, any of you that either post about this on your blog or on twitter will receive an extra entry. Just come back here and leave a comment telling me did so. I know money is tight for a lot of us now, so any donation is really appreciated. Thanks so much and good luck!!

I made a donation and will post about it on my blog - although I don't have too many followers! This is such a good cause - my daughter and I ran the Disney half marathon with Team in Training in 2004. I will keep your husband and your family in my thoughts and prayers.

I donated. What a lovely way to do a fundraiser.

Oh, and I'll be adding your blog to my "daily read" list -- you do such lovely work! (I got here today from Tallgrass Prairie Studio.)

I'm guessing that my gmail address will come through with my comment so that you have contact info? If you don't see email addresses with comments could you blog or comment to that effect? Thanks!

Glad to have helped! I know what you're going through Lady. My son was the one who was diagnosed when he was 13. He's now 25, and in the best of health. It was a struggle, but we won!! You will too! Good luck!
