    American Cancer Society Quilt

    Hi all,

    I talked with a lady today who is helping a friend organize a Relay for Life walk in a neighboring town. They have selected me to make a quilt to donate for their silent auction!


    It will be my own design, complete with some embroidery I have asked a friend to do. Another close friend is going to help with the piecing and or binding and I'll do the longarm work on it.
    The event is May 12th.

    She has invited me (Quilter's Pantry) to be there and set up a space, but I'll be out of town that weekend.

    I'm honored to do this for them. Can't wait to get started. Already have the design picked out (three of them actually that I designed, now to choose one).

    I'll post pictures when it is done. I'll need to come up with a name for it also.

    AWESOME!!! Can't wait to see pictures

    I have a Relay for Life patch with the emblem embroidried on it. I think it's 3inches by 4inches. If you would like one to use as part of your label shoot me your snailmail addy and I'll shoot one to you. I bought like 50 of them off eBay a few years back and give one to everybody that does a swap with me each year on blocks we all use for Relay quilts.

    Can you get them to change the quilt from a silent auction to a raffle? Raffles tend to bring in a lot more money for quilts!

    I'll suggest it, but it's not my event, I'm just doing the quilt for them.

    I worked for the American Cancer Society for years - and doing raffles are sometimes diffcult because of the nonprofit status and the laws in each state. So usually a silent auction is the best way to go. You will definitely benefit many people through a great organization.

    I know there are rules for that here in TN also, which is why they may be doing the silent auction.

    Non-profits have to be very careful with laws regarding funding and raising money.
