    Opportunity quilt for Parkinson's research

    Finally finished this quilt! My aunt and I have put a lot of time and effort into this quilt. She will raffle it off with all proceeds going to Parkinson's research. My uncle was diagnosed with Parkinson's around 8 years ago. They are both active members of their community, church, local Parkinson's support group and local quilt guild. This is our second quilt. Just had to share it and show it off. There are 64 1.5" finished units in each 12" block. Sound like fun? oh, yeah..... lol
