Welcome to everyone stopping by from Amy's Bloggers Quilt Festival! For regular readers, this quilt is very familar! I recently finished this quilt, with the help of many wonderful blocks donated from around the world, to be auctioned off at a fundraiser.
My oldest and best friend was the organizer of the Vive Le Rouge fundraiser and I wanted to do what I could to help her meet her goals. Well I am so happy to say they did! Even with terrible weather, the event made their goal. And the quilt above brought in $500!!
I received blocks from 8 states and 3 different countries to help pull this quilt together in time.
The quilt is 68 x 90 inches...so a rather good size for a twin bed, or snuggling on the couch.
Don't forget to click the button below to visit all the quilts entered into the festival! It is a lot of fun!
And a whole lot of inspiration!!
I like this very much:)ReplyDelete
