Wow, that is beautiful. And made on hand crank machines. You guys are troopers. That is amazing. It's a great centennial quilt. I bet it raises lots of money. Keep us posted.

the blocks are 5" squares of muslin, then the individual sews (two)
2 1/2" square on opposite corners. Then you get out the crayons and permanent markers and have fun signing your name, drawing pictures and embellishing or sharing a comment. Not sure where you live but I would be happy to share my machines if you are with in reasonable travel from where I live. Sue put the blocks together with 2 1/2" sashing and corner stones.

Beautiful quilt. My local Guild made a "Pink" quilt in April and we sold tickets for it. We made $850.00 $2.00 each or 3 for $5.00. We have a local Cancer org. here in town that we help patients with travel expenses when they have to go for treatments. We live 85 miles from the nearest treatment center. The quilt was drawing was held on June 26th at our "Tough Enough to Wear Pink" night at our annual Rodeo, here in Pecos,Tx. (Home of the World's First Rodeo). We decided that since Pink is a color used for women's cancer that it would be appropriate to give it away that night, that is why for the last five or six years we have had that special night at the Rodeo. Guess who won the quilt, none other than yours truly. I gave the quilt to my daughter who lives in another town, for a friend of hers who was just beginning Chemo treatments and has stage 3 of breast cancer. The lady loved it. When others have congratulated me on the win, and find out that I gave it away the same day, they can hardly believe it. But I tell them, it was made because of wanting to help someone who has cancer, so who but a current patient would be the best to have it. My Thyroid cancer I had apparently is all gone after my suregery last summer from my last Dr. visit. I just couldn't see keeping the quilt when it was really made for others. Good luck on your sales. Are you selling tickets to outsiders or just locally? P.M. me and let me know. Sorry everyone that this is so long, but I wanted to tell you my little story. I would love to know the name of the pattern you used. Gerbie
