I am excited to share with you our first Charity project of 2009. It is a special charity rag quilt as it is going to be made up of numerous squares donated by a combination of RQQ and QCG (Quilters Corner Group) quilting members. This quilt is a teddy bear themed rag quilt being created in honor of one of our RQQ sister's 7 year old daughter that is battling Leukemia. She has had a long and brave journey of treatments for close to a year and is almost to her maintenance program. This quilt has been chosen to help raise money for the Make-A-Wish Foundation because they are granting her wish later this year. It is a well deserved wish for a sweet girl that has had a long brave battle. Once it is finished it will be auctioned off with all proceeds going to the Make-A-Wish Foundation. Here are a few pictures of some of the squares I have received so far....
This is a close up of some of them.
And another close up. :)
If an abundant amount of squares are received then a second quilt will be created to auction off with all proceeds going to the Leukemia & Lymphoma Society.
