that quilt? That's the question I get most often from people I show my quilts to. Usually my answer is 'nothing'. It will get folded and displayed, tossed over the couch, or hung on a wall. I don't usually make them with a bed or recipient in mind.
Sometimes a quilt gets made because I wanted to take a class or learn a new technique. That's the reason this quilt came to be. It's the 2009 Thimbleberries quilt called Three C's.
I finished my quilt right away and handed it over to the long arm quilter. When that step was done I brought it home, stitched on the binding and folded it up and tucked it away. Then, this past spring I was at a meeting at church when we turned to discussing fund raising. I remembered this quilt and quickly volunteered to donate it for a raffle.
So, there it is.... up for adoption to the lucky ticket holder. Come October 15th, at our church's fall dinner, someone will pull a ticket and announce a winner. $2.00 a pop or 3 for $5.00. It's not easy to let go, but it is an easy way for me to make a contribution to a worthy cause. Let us not forget I have 2 kids in college now so creativity in giving is important.
