Why has it been so quiet around here lately? I’ve been hard at work finishing up this raffle quilt for 2017 Make A Blanket Day, that is why. If you would like to see it in person, we will have it on display at Cornerstone Church’s Trunk or Treat on October 30th and elsewhere in the community between now and February 18th when one lucky winner will take it home. I will post updates here about where it will be displayed as places come available.
Tickets are $1 each and all the proceeds go to Project Linus of Lee County. These funds stay right here in our community and we truly appreciate every dollar. If you would like to purchase tickets now, just fill out the contact form below and tell me how many you would like me to set aside for you in the comments section. I will be carrying the tickets with me from now until February, so pay me when you find me and I will give you your tickets. Good luck!!
The registration for the Gracie’s Get Well Challenge quilt is now open. You can go to the Project Linus site for more information and to register. The first portion of the pattern will be released on September 10th.
PLEASE be sure to state Lee County, AL as your chapter, as the entire $15 participation fee will come back to our local chapter for use in our community by our local Project Linus chapter.
We are looking forward to seeing all the beautiful and creative quilts that come from this pattern challenge. We will be opening up the Facebook page so you can post progress photos, if you would like to do so.
Finally, don’t forget that there are extra door prize tickets to be had for Make A Blanket Day in February for those who participate in this challenge. See the Facebook page or previous posts on this blog for more details.
It is here! The 2017 Make A Blanket Day Brochure. Click here: MABD 2017 Brochure, for a downloadable copy. If you have a question, please leave a comment or contact me. I tried to cover as much as possible, but I am sure to be posting updates as the time draws near. If you are planning to participate in the Gracie’s Quilt Challenge, please be sure to indicate your Project Linus chapter (either Lee County, AL or Columbus, GA) when you purchase your pattern.
Can’t wait to see you all there!!
This is the site where we will have detailed information about events we are hosting and serving opportunities in our area. Eventually, you will be able to request a blanket for a child in need through this site, as well. Bear with us as we develop the site and make it awesome!
