Grandmother's Flower Garden Fund Raiser

Previously, I've mentioned my participation in a couple of internet groups whose focus is quilting. One of the lists, I've been a member of for over twelve years and during these years I've built some wonderful friendships. Who would have thought, just fifteen years ago, that people would build strong, lasting bonds with strangers through this medium? We laugh, shout, cry, stomp our feet, and support each other as though we've known each other our entire lives. It is amazing and comforting to know we're there for each other.
One of my friend's is going through a difficult time right now. Her husband is need of cardiac surgery and the expense of it is overwhelming for the family. Initially, the surgery was being scheduled for September but two days ago they learned it must be moved up a couple of months to June. With the support of family and friends there have been various fund raisers to aid them with the medical costs but they still have a long way to go. One of the fund raisers is a quilt raffle.

Isn't it beautiful? The quilt was handquilted by my friend and machine quilted by another friend and both friends do exceptional work.

Please visit my friend's blog to learn more about the Grandmother's Quilt Raffle.

I emailed your friend for her addy so I can send a check! This is an untenable situation. I am so thankful for good insurance otherwise I am uninsurable.
