I’m pleased to announce that a winner of the quilt was chosen on Monday. (It’s taken me a few days to post as the flu has come down on our household like a tons of bricks!)
Winner of the quilt is Farrah DeSelle, a mom and nurse in New Hampshire. She has the idea of somehow getting the quilt to Newtown (either temporarily or permanently), so we are still figuring out what journey this quilt will have… Stay tuned for details.
Thank you to everyone who donated and supported this project. Whether you chipped in $5 or $250, your contribution is much appreciated. In all, we raised $3000! Wonderful! Thank you also to those who forwarded emails, shared Facebook posts, or took the time to write me supportive emails. Every one of you helped make a difference.
Next on my list is to make eight coasters (“mug-rugs”) for the $100 donors, and four wall hangings for the $250 donors. This is a close-up of the back of the quilt, where you can get a better look at the quilting. This star block wasn’t used on the front as the contrast wasn’t enough, so I decided to sew it into the back.
