Make-A-Wish Teddy Bear Quilt Results

Hi, All!!

Lisa, our organizer for our latest group charity project, is busy with parties, weddings, and being a mom, so she asked for me to send out the results of the auction, and a huge hug from all who bid, donated squares, and supported her when she was putting them all together.

As many of you saw, Lisa did a fantastic job of creating 4 items: 2 twin size quilts, a baby quilt, and a "taggy/lovey" style blankie out of the donated squares. There are lots of pictures from previous posts, so please take a minute to see them. Lisa had a few challenges along the way, but handled it with her usual dedication and love. The squares were donated by members of our own Rag Queen Quilters RQQtm group on Ebay, as well as QCG, Quilter's Corner Group, another super group on Ebay.

The auctions ended last week. One lucky and very generous woman bid and won all 4 items, and also donated additional funds to both charities. Lisa described the winner as a dedicated customer and good friend. This woman is truly one of the special angels we find whenever a cause needs to be met. I wish I knew her name, but we should say a little word of thanks for angels like her. The twin blankets both earned $50 each, with 100% of that money going to both charities. The baby blanket made $43, and the taggy made $15.50. Our Angel said she wished all the quilts had gone for more money, so she donated an additional $300, which Lisa forwarded directly on to both the Lukemia Foundation and Make-A-Wish. I think our groups should give themselves pats on the back and hugs all around. There are so many special women in our groups, and also a huge hug and thanks to our Angel!! Wonderful things happen when hearts open!

Keep your eyes peeled for our next charity project. I am sure one will be starting soon! In the meantime, remember that just a little donation can make a huge difference in the world, and all the little things add up! Thanks, and have a great Sunday!
