    For Cancer. We have a bingo group and they will get to sign this quilt for a donation and have their names put in a pot then at the end of our six week campaign, there will be a drawing of their names. Winner gets to keep the wall hanging. All proceeds donated to the Local Cancer Center.

    Very pretty. I would use it as a lap quilt and could easily see a little one snagging it to curl up with too. Multi purpose! You have done a lovely job. Thank you for sharing!

    Thank you all for your sweet thoughts. I took it to the Lodge and hung it in the bingo hall. It is a winner! drawing will be April 11 and then the money will be given the 17th at the 'walk, run or ride for life'. I have another one that will be raffled off that day and all proceeds again, will benefit our local cancer center. Big turn-out for the 'run, walk', so should sell a lot of tickets. Small towns with small businesses and economy is hurting, but Cancer does not wait for better days. if you have a chance, do something in your town. I'll post the other one tomorrow, when I get new batteries for my camera. I got two shots today and that was all........good thing I could take the chip out and put it in the computer for this pink and black one. Thank you all for your nice encouragements. g'nite Ruth
