Autism Speaks Quilt

Wednesday, October 7th, 2009

Wow! I just got word that  the quilt several of us made last fall brought in almost $2000 for the local Autism Speaks raffle!!! I had no idea!!! I will be contacting Lisa (who donated fabric) and Melanie (who helped with the piecing) to see if they want to do another quilt!  ~ I know Lisa does! She is the one who told me about the $2000!! Lisa owns and operates a local business that features items to help families affected by autism.

One of the latest quilts I have been working on is a joint effort with a quilting buddy. We are making a quilt for Sensory Critters, which will be donated to the Autism Speaks spring 2009 silent auction. Our local quilt shop gave us a discount on the fabric for the quilt. And a local long-arm quilter did the spiral quilting at a discount price as well. I’ll show a picture of the whole quilt once I complete the binding. But here are two teasers.
