    Cosmic Stars

    I made the top to the this quilt a couple years ago. It sat for a long long time waiting for inspiration on how to quilt it.
    I decided to donate it for a fund raiser auction happening on Saturday, November 9. Our church helps support a camp in Romania that brings kids from poor villages and kids from local orphanages to spend a week at camp. For the past 11 years we have been sending summer teams to work at the camp as well as construction crew teams and also a member of our congregation has been going over for nearly 20 years as a dentist on dental teams.
    My husband, two daughters and a son in law have all served at this camp over the years.
    Hopefully it will bring in a couple hundred dollars.

    The pattern is from Cozy Quilt Designs and is call Cosmic Stars

    Your quilt is beyond beautiful and I hope it brings more money than ever raised in past auctions!!
    I am very familiar with this organization and actually stood on the land where the camp is when it was a dream of papa chuck and Debbie! This organization helps children that look forward to this camp every year. It's the bright spot in their life. God bless you and the teams that will be helping at the camp. This quilt is truly a work from your heart. Thanks for all you are doing....Dianna

    Diana, thank you for your comments. Debbie is here in Camarillo at the moment with a Discipleship Summit we are hosting with 11 Romanian pastors. As they were all sharing with us Sunday night, several of them spoke of "Pappa Chuck" I have never met him but I sure have heard a lot of great things about him! It has been fun visiting with the pastors when I have been able to. I will get to go to the pier in Ventura with them on Saturday afternoon and then again at the dinner/auction Saturday evening. Sunday they will come to church and then my husband will drive with them to LAX for them to fly back home.
    I hope to someday be able to make it out to the camp. My husband really would like to go again.

    Be kind to yourself, by being kind to others. When you help others you help yourself.

    Love the "reason" for this quilt and also love the quilt itself! The quilting is wonderful too! I think if one changed the fabrics to red and green colors with a gold star, it would make a great Christmas quilt. Very nice! Hope it raises a lot of money.

    Very nicely pieced and your quilting accented your piecing. Someone is going to be a very luck person with the highest bid!!
