Donation Quilt


The school that I work in does a lot of charity work for the local veterans organizations, our local zoo, underpriveleged kids etc. Well, last year I donated a quilt and we sold raffle tickets for an orphanage that a local girl set up. We netted some good money from that so the other day one of the teachers that runs some of these groups asked if I had a quilt that we could raffle off again. I told her I did and we started the next morning selling tickets... I donated my "Flowers for Maddie" quilt which I really loved, but the raffle is for a good cause so I didn't really mind donating it.
If I miss it that much I can always remake it for myself :)
I have been asked if I would make something in red, white, and blue for after the first of the year so that's a project I'll be putting on my 2010 Git er Done list.
Hope everyone had a good Saturday.

Peg, I giggled when I read that you were asked if you had a quilt you could donate. Ya think?! You probably have a dozen! ;) Seriously, I love this quilt! Not only is it my favorite scrappy kind of quilt, but the name is very special -- my little grand-daughter is Maddie.
