Forget Me Not Quilt



Take a look at this!!! Meg Hawkey from Crabapple Hill Studio wanted to make a quilt that would be donated to the "Susan G. Komen for the Cure". This quilt will be raffled in order to raise funds to help find a cure for breat cancer.
Meg contacted me in the spring of 2008 and asked if I would participate. Below is the block I did.


The back of the quilt has the signatures of all the designers that contributed a block.
The quilting is by Debbi Trevino of Village Quiltworks. The photography is courtesy of Sandy Summers Russell of Summerland Photography.

The fabrics were donated by 8 fabric companies and 25 designers contributed blocks.
Want tickets??? Take a look at www.komen-houston.org/quilt.
More information is on their site, showing all the blocks, the designers, and most important, how to purchase the raffle tickets.


A great quilt for a great cause!
