Hurray! It’s time to bring out the teal fabrics!
Every year for the past 7 years, we’ve made a collaborative quilt to be raffled/auctioned for the benefit of ovarian cancer patients and their families. The Rona put a stop to it for a year, but we’ve resumed as soon as safely possible, and now it’s that time again.
For the new readers, the way it works is that I come up with a concept which plays on the word ‘Teal’, the Ovarian Cancer colour. The team members each produce a block (or two, or several, up to you) on this theme, and mail them to me. I arrange them and assemble and quilt the piece. It’s then donated to the Trudy Crowley Foundation and the money raised from it goes towards the salary of the Ovarian Cancer Nurse the foundation funds, and to supporting patients and their families.
From past years, I already have a list of contributors who’ve asked to participate again, as shown below. If you’d like to join us, please say so in the Comments and if I don’t already have your email, I’ll request it, so that I can send out the brief and timeline. The brief will be going out in 2 weeks’ time, so you have time to consider if you are able to contribute. I need a minimum of 30 blocks, but any shortfall I make up myself, so that’s not an issue.
