Make-A-Wish Charity Teddy Bear Rag Quilt

Hello all! Hope you are all having a wonderful Sunday! This will probably be my final blog of the "in progress" of this particular charity project the RQQ and QCG groups have contributed to. I have added the appliques received, all squares are "X'ed" and these last 2 rag quilts are ready to be constructed. I have pictures of the one that I have layed-out. I have a total of 60-9 1/2" squares for each quilt! Absolutely amazing, isn't it???

The second quilt is made up of an equal amount of squares as well. Of course I split all the different prints up evenly between the 2. They will both either have neutral colors on the back or prints to match the fronts. So the back of these 2 quilts will be a random and fun layout!

I have had a lot of fun working on this project and the cause it is for makes it all the more rewarding. One of each quilt quilt large and small will have all proceeds going towards The Make-A-Wish Foundation. The other larger and small quilt will have all their proceeds going towards the Leukemia & Lymphoma Society. Once again, these were all created in honor of an RQQ sister's precious 7 year old daughter whom was diagnosed with cancer last year and has been a little trooper through all of her treatments.
Please be sure to stop back next Sunday for the final finished products and to also get all the information on the auctions for these charity quilts. We hope the auctions do well for these charities, as they help to make a difference in the lives of those in need of help and hope. Have a super week and if you have time stop in daily to see all the fun blogs our ladies post!

Full size the best I could fit in my camera view...
