Choosing Hope Quilt and Charity Raffle

Choosing Hope Quilt

Two years ago, my charity bee and I sewed this happy quilt top with a pattern from my book Modern Bee.

... I'm a little embarrassed to say it has taken me this long to finish it!

But I had an idea and couldn't wait to run with it...

You see, this quilt could be YOURS if you'd like to enter to win it!

Choosing Hope Quilt

Donate just $5 and you'll receive an entry to win this quilt, with all proceeds to benefit my good friend Danielle (@choosing_hope) and her family!

Danielle and I used to be neighbors and attended the same church. A couple years ago, she was diagnosed with her first chronic condition (POTS), which made it necessary to step back from her job as a social worker. She also has Lyme Disease, and a third chronic illness--her body's inability to get rid of mold--which means she and her family will need to move this summer and replace most of their furniture and personal belongings. In her own words:

So not only will Danielle and her family have moving expenses, but they will also need to replace most of their furniture and personal belongings. Because of high medical bills for her other chronic conditions (Lyme and POTS), this is especially burdensome.

One thing I learn more and more as I get older is that we all need help at times, and it takes a very brave person to ask for help. It was a complete joy to be able to finally finish this quilt in honor of my friend's fight against chronic illness, and I hope it will bring a lot of joy to its new lucky owner! The quilt is 52" x 41.5" (large baby quilt size) and was free-motion quilted on my Baby Lock Tiara. It's made of quality fabrics and thread and is machine bound for durability. You can follow Danielle's blog, Choosing Hope, and learn more about her T-shirt fundraiser!

Donate Here!

Each $5 donation equals one entry to win this quilt and all money will go directly to Danielle's PayPal to assist her family with moving expenses.

No donation is too small. The winner of the quilt raffle will be chosen randomly from all $5 donations received by Friday, June 17, 2016. (If you donate $20, you'll get 4 entries, and so on.) If you have any questions, let me know and I'm happy to answer them here. Thank you for your generous support!
