Raffle Quilt UPDATE

I am very happy to announce that my little quilt raffle raised $600 for Children's Heath Care of Atlanta.

Also, the quilt went to a very good home. Mr. McLemore was the lucky winner.

Here is Tyler's latest picture. He's going to be real cool this summer. Best wishes to him and his family.

Quilt Looking for a Home

One of my co-workers Jessica knows an adorable 4 year old named Tyler. Tyler has been diagnosed with Wilms Tumor which is a form of childhood kidney cancer and is currently undergoing treatment at the AFLAC Cancer Center at Children’s Healthcare of Atlanta.

In order to raise money as a donation to CHOA in Tyler’s name, Jessica and myself have decided to raffle off a quilt in our office. (Sorry friends in blog land, this is only for my office.)

Office Details: Tickets are $1.00 each and may be purchased from Jessica or MarySue on the 5th floor, Lynn on the 6th floor and Fran on the 7th floor. Winner to be announced on May 27 @10:00 am. If you would like to see and feel the quilt, it will be in my cubicle on the 5th floor.

Quilt Details: Title: “Quilting Friends” and measures 70”x70”.The blocks in this quilt came from and international block exchange. If you look very carefully, signatures can be found on the blocks. Assembled and quilted by me, fabrics and batting is cotton and was washed upon completion. “Quilting Friends” was entered in the 2010 Chattahoochee Quilt Show.
