And the winner is....

Congratulations, Barbara for winning the MS raffle quilt.  With everyone's support I raised $465 for The National MS Society-Delaware Chapter.  Didn't win?  I may make another quilt next year. Thank you, to all who supported the cause!

Quilt Raffle to benefit the Delaware Chapter of The National MS Society

I have made a quilt in honor of a dear friend of mine who lives with MS.  Every year Delaware has a fundraising event for MS called Bike to the Bay.  After losing 30 pounds, I was going to participate in this year's event, however, I injured my back and am unable to ride.  Instead, I decided to help raise money for the team I was going to bike with, Riders with Hope.  This quilt was made with all batiks with the exception of the white, which is a quilter's kona cotton. It is in the process of being machine quilted by Deanna Utley of Appoquinimink Quilting.  The pattern is Jewel Box by Eleanor Burns. Please feel free to email me any questions. I will be posting more pictures as soon as it comes back from Deanna. 
Thank you for your support!
