Our quilt is getting media attention!

Thanks again to all of you for participating in this string quilt.
You may recall we donated it to the Katie Cares Foundation.
Katie's mother Ruth was just on a local radio station being interviewed about the foundation,
and she mentioned an upcoming fundraiser, which includes raffling off our quilt.
For the record, it is the first prize, ahead of a pair of Winnipeg Jets hockey tickets.
She thinks it is beautiful -- and I know all of you do too--
and she's thrilled that 20 quilters from around the world made it.

The website doesn't have many details about the quilt
(check under fundraisers)
but there's a link to our blog on the Katie Cares facebook page.

Check that out, and be proud once again of the effort we all made together.
What started as a bit of a joke to prove that string quilts are beautiful
has grown into into a larger piece of good work that could potentially help many sick kids.

Thanks again!

Anyone want to make another quilt?
Let me know in the comments, and I'll issue another string challenge soon.

I'd be pleased to make another four (maybe more) blocks to sew into a string quilt for sick kids. Looking forward to the pattern or directions.
Wonderful news about the string quilt for Katie Cares Foundation.

Cheers!

Jeanneke.
