I am hosting a team for The American Cancer Society's Relay for life event being held for the first time in my home town of DeBary Florida. I rallied my quilting friend Leah to help to make a quilt for donation this Saturday. Could have picked an easier pattern, but I wanted the quilt to be something special. The pattern is called First Monday, by Miss Rosie's Quilt Co. My local quilt shop in Orange City, Accent on Quiltint, has donated all of the material!! I am was amazed at there response, the shop owner was more than happy to contribute and helped to pick out all of the fabrics. I also contacted Fabric.com, whom I frequent often and they sent me a $40.00 gift card, which I purchased the backing and batting. The long arm quilter, Nancy Schmeizer from the quilt shop has offered her services as well. We are on our way to making a difference one stitch at a time!!
