Make-A-Wish Teddy Bear Charity Rag Quilt

Happy Sunday everyone! Thanks for stopping by RQQ's blog! I want to post more pictures of the squares received from the members of RQQ and QCG groups. Again, this quilt is being created in honor of a brave little girl that has been undergoing treatment for her Cancer diagnosis. Her mother is one of our RQQ sisters whom of which has been very busy with taking care of her family, following her little girls treatments closely and working full time. I have received well over 60 squares for this teddy bear themed rag quilt and have not received one print in the same yet. The deadline is April 11th to have all the squares in so I may layout all the squares and start sewing. I am excited for this to occur. After completion we will be auctioning it off on Ebay with all proceeds going to the Make-A-Wish Foundation.

Here is a picture of all the squares I received in this past week alone...

Here is a close up of a few of Marylee's embroidered teddy squares....

This is a close up of the other prints received, aren't they all adorable??!


I saved this one for last...it is a special square that Marylee created and embroidered showing the two special groups that helped create this special quilt...

Be sure to stop back every Sunday to check on the progress of this charity quilt and all other charity projects we will be making in the future! Have a super day!
