Heroes Helping Heroes Quilt Take Two!


Calling all charitable quilters....

Last year, over 40 women from all over the world pitched in to help create this BEAUTIFUL quilt for a silent auction that supported The Heroes Foundation, a cancer philanthropy in Indianapolis, IN.  Each sent me a block or two along with a card stating who their block was in honor of.  One woman was battling cancer herself, many had beat it, and everyone involved had been touched by someone with cancer.  The blocks came together to make this beauty that raised $1000!



I've been asked to make another quilt for the silent auction at The Evening with Heroes celebration on February 23, 2013.  However, I can't pull this off without a little help from my friends.  

Would anyone like to pitch in to help me make another quilt?

I'd like to use Erica of {Kitchen Table Quilting}'s Improv Circles Wall Quilt that she recently posted as my inspiration for this year's quilt.



It reminds me of Kandinsky's circle painting with a modern twist.

Tammy Lawson, an amazing longarm quilter in Indy, has already graciously agreed to quilt it!  

I can't wait to show the progress of the quilt like I did last year.

I will post more details on block size & a quick tutorial this Sunday.  Let me know if you are interested!!!  

Thanks!
xoxo

  6. Count me in again! Last year I was fortunate enough to say that I didn't have anybody near and dear to me to dedicate my blocks to. This year I'm not as fortunate and would love to dedicate some more blocks to this great cause.
