Here are the donated blocks! We have about 120 and will have several more turned in at the screening. At the end of the table are the raffle baskets. Although our primary goal was to bring about awareness of the organization, we also wanted to get blocks to make quilts and to sell raffle tickets to make money to buy more fabric. I think we've succeeded.
This wonderful basket was donated by a little shop called Needles; it's located in Wellsboro, PA. It's about 45 miles south of Corning! How's that for wonderful support? They hope to start a QoV there in the next year.
Here's another collection of goodies. We had nine shops donate items to be raffled off. I'll be running to the Salvation Army tomorrow to get baskets to put these items in.
I'm eyeing the Deploy That Fabric book! Underneath is some fabric, including some pieces of my niece's ACU! She's on her second tour of duty (this time in Afghanistan). The book has some really cute bags that can be made from old uniforms. BTW, she's a quilter! YAY!
