The Teal Deal: T4T finds a new home

I have good news to share πŸ™‚

Below is a copy of an email I received from Emma at Ovarian Cancer Australia about the Time For Teal quilt. I’ll let her tell the news:


I’m so pleased to have been able to help, and for such a respectable total. And to all of you who contributed and made it possible to create the quilt, a huge β™₯thank youβ™₯, a big hug, and congratulations, at helping to make a difference.

I’ll be making a start on Stay+ soon, which shouldn’t take long, as I have all the blocks ready and the layout sorted. And for anyone who’d like a chance to help out with the one after that, Tealed with a Kiss, what are needed are blocks featuring an X shape, in teal and cream, 12.5 inch square unfinished.

I’m so happy to think that this lovely quilt is now someone’s treasured possession πŸ™‚

    Well done Kate!! And, of course, all those other wonderful women who contributed too. Research into ovarian cancer is so necessary and the $500 will be a good boost to their coffers.

      I’m hoping the next two quilts will also provide a boost – in fact, it’s a pleasure to be able to indulge my favourite pastime at the same time as doing some good πŸ™‚

    Wonderful news, and a great effort β™‘

  3. katechiconi says:

    I’m so proud of the work everyone has put in, and this makes it seem worthwhile πŸ™‚

  4. It was well worth the $500. I’m happy it will serve 2 purposes.

    That’s wonderful Kate! I like to think of people getting ‘competitive’ over our (but mostly your) work πŸ˜‰ When I was organising my workroom the other week I came across the box where I’d stashed any teal fabrics so I’m good to go with the kisses.

  6. Just used my foreign exchange calculator – respectable indeed! Well done πŸ™‚

  7. Sandy says:

    Well done! So glad the auction was so successful.

    that’s really great news!

    Well done Kate, thank you for sharing the email with us all, it is great to be able to contribute to such a worthy cause. Viv would be thrilled that it did so well. I have my teal and creams together and will get started soon. I have been taking note of cross blocks that I have seen.

    • katechiconi says:

      Viv would be delighted, I’m sure. I need to replenish my teal stash soon… I’m hoping for a huge range of Xs to make Tealed with a Kiss as varied and interesting as possible, so I’m looking forward to seeing what you come up with.

    That’s great news πŸ™‚

    • katechiconi says:

      Yes, it was kind of her to let me know how the auction went. Sending the quilt out into the unknown felt strange, now I know it has a good home and is doing some good too.

    Well done, Kate! And I am so excited to work on a block for Teal with a Kiss! I’m getting closer every day, and I can hardly wait.

    • katechiconi says:

      We’re delighted to have you along! Can you let me have your email address to add to the rest of the Ovarian Cancer quilt group? Mine is on the Contact Me page of my blog. Tealed with a Kiss is going to be a fun and hopefully fast quilt to make πŸ™‚

    What great news! The quilt was lovely and well worth every dollar, I know, but I am just so happy it raised so much for the Ovarian Cancer cause. Thank you, Kate, and everyone else who contributed.

    • katechiconi says:

      I hope the next two do well too. We’ve set the bar pretty high now! The second one is in progress, and the third is in planning already, so I’m trying to ensure we maintain momentum.

  17. rutigt says:

    ThatΒ΄s good news! And finally a quilt is sold for itΒ΄s right value! IΒ΄m glad you came up with the idea!

  18. Carole says:

    How brilliant that people loved it enough to pay a decent amount for it. You’ll know that it’s going to be treasured now, as it should be.

  19. Magpie Sue says:

    What good news indeed! Excellent! I’ll have to keep my eyes open for X blocks I could make for the next one…

  20. knitnkwilt says:

    Great news! I especially like that there was active bidding–lots wanting it.

    • katechiconi says:

      Yes, that was really encouraging news, because it means there’s a market for quilts and future ones will hopefully also find an eager bidding audience for the charity.

  21. Everyone should be proud!
