Charity Projects of 2009

Each Sunday here in RQQ is reserved for the progress of our charity projects.

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 the whole group of them so far...there are actually more of each kind but had to stack some...they would take up my whole floor if I didn't.

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.
