September – Childhood Cancer Awareness Month

Posted by on Sep 1, 2014

It  has been a long time since I was last here and what a summer it has been –  so much has happened that has kept me away from my sewing room. The good news is that I have started back creating and just love what I have on my design wall right now.

In early June I had announced that I was going to start working on a quilt called Celtic Celebration to use as a raffle quilt to raise funds for the  Jennifer Kranz Research fund. Despite my lack of  ability to sit long enough to sew, I have not stopped creating this quilt in my heart and mind, it has evolved to be a very different quilt than the one I was going to start in June.

As September is Childhood Cancer Awareness Month, I am excited to now be  able to restart my efforts to create a quilt to honor Jennifer and hopefully raise some much needed funds to donate to Unravel Pediatric Cancer  the  soon to be  non profit set up  with “one goal in mind; we will unravel pediatric cancer.”

Here is what I said about the quilt in June  and all are still valid:

  • It will be called  “Celtic Celebration for JLK”
  • It will have applique Celtic knots
  • It will glitter
  • It will have a butterfly and a dragonfly
  • The colors will be warm and cheery
  • Every stitch will be put in with love

So the plan is now as follows:

  • Sept 1  start blogging about the creation of the quilt
  • during September continue to blog to show the progress of the quilt  and bring awareness to Childhood Cancer
  • the raffle will now start on October 28 and end on February 12

So here is the ask for all of you who read this post:

  • Please share this blog post with your friends to help build awareness-Thanks!
  • Like my Facebook page by clicking on the big blue “F” to the right of the screen to get updates on blogs posts
  • If you are a quilter and you would like to donate a quilt (however big or small) to the raffle let me know
  • Follow Libby’s Blog   to get updates on  her journey
  • In October – February consider buying tickets  for the raffle.
