    A Major Award!!

    This is a quilt that I made for "cookie day" with my mother in law and sisters in law. I'd seen this panel and I knew that A Christmas Story was a Christmas staple for the family. I didn't know how to decide which of the 5 sisters should get the quilt so we held a drawing. Everyone put their name in with a $10 donation to the American Cancer Society and I matched what we collected. We did this in honor of a niece who is a breast cancer survivor. Here's Shelly showing off her major award (and it wasn't a bowling alley!).

    What a great way to support a relative and raising funds for a really great organization.

    Love your quilt and the donation stor, A MAJOR AWARD to you. We got A MAJOR AWARD last Christmas -- my stepson sent us the lamp! I'm surprised how much I love it, and if he thought we'd get a good laugh out of it and put it away he was wrong I have it proudly displayed in my dining area and I smile every time I look at it.
    And a Merry Christmas (Story) and Happy Holiday to all!!!!

    put off till tomorrow what you can do today, and if you procrastinate long enough, you may never have to do it.

    Wonderful, both the quilt and the story with it. May good health continue for your niece. Mine is fighting the same battle as we "speak".

    I actually made two of these quilts. I bought one of the panels from fabric.com but I found that one of my local quilt stores (River Road Quilts - La Crosse, WI) also carried the panel and coordinating fabrics.
