    Here is the latest pictures of the quilt top - I sent it to Terryl and Marci to be quilted. They have added their touches by adding a "John Deere" outer border. It made it look wonderful.

    If you remember it will be sold and the the proceeds given to the American Cancer Society for Breast Cancer Research.

    If you would like to bid on this quilt before it goes public, please let me know. We have set a limit that will be accepted for a beginning bid for this beautiful quilt, so don't insult the effort with a low bid.

    Many thanks to the ones that contributed to this quilt from across the USA.

    Enjoy the updated photos. Thanks Terryl and Marci for sending photos.

    I received updated pictures from Terryl and Marci. They are closeups of the quilting being done on individual blocks. They are putting hearts, butterflys, swirls on the watermelon patch.

    They are having so much fun making each block special just like each person that donated toward this quilt.

    Please enjoy the updated photos. I had sent plain muslim for the backing and they made the decision to change it to one with leaves and acorns. I had told them the quilt was in their hands and do what they wanted with it while they quilted it.

    They are doing an awesome job.......almost done!

    Backing looks blue, but it's really a yellow/buttercream color with oak leaves and acorns on it. Each block has a different design on it, Marci and I will be doing some type of echo/thread painting on the applique blocks to best accentuate the fablous work that was done on them. Our goal is to have the quilting done by the weekend, I will be making the binding tomorrow so it's ready when the quilting is done. We've certainly enjoyed doing this.

    Very nice quilt! I wish you were selling raffle tickets instead of having an auction, as I would've bought tickets.
