QUILT FOR LOVE

Okay my lovely readers...

Now is your chance to give back!

I am putting together a community quilt project.

PROJECT:
To put together a quilt that is full of handmade love that will be auctioned off and 100% of the proceeds will go to a local cancer organization.

For those of you who are new to my blog, I lost my mother just shy of 2 years ago to breast cancer. She is my biggest inspiration and reason for creating and for being who I am. This is my way of giving a little something back to the people and community that so generously gave her their love and attention through her illness.

So what I am asking of you is a little bit of your time and love put into a piece of fabric that will be woven together by me in hopes to give a little back.

GUIDELINES:
Each square will be 12" x 12".

You use your own fabric, whatever you choose.

Keep your design at least one inch away from the border of the square.

You may emroider something, a picture, a quote, anything.

You can crazy quilt it, or patchwork it.

You can fabric stamp it.

Anything your heart desires.

Include your name on it!

::::::::::::::::::::::::::::
I only ask of you to please not include any pink ribbons or specific breast or other cancer items. Although this quilt is for that purpose, I do not believe in using these symbols to sell something.
:::::::::::::::::::::::::::

I would like to stick to a theme of positivity, whatever that may be to you.

You can email me any questions at all through this process!

DEADLINES:

I dont want any pressure, so I will make the deadline for this be April 1st. That gives you over 2 months!

YOUR HELP:

The only other thing I ask of you is when it is all ready for the auction to help me promote it on your blog! The more we can get this out there, the better chances of raising some actual money!

PLEASE PASS THIS ALONG TO YOUR FRIENDS, I AM LOOKING TO REACH 80 PARTICIPANTS FOR THIS QUILT.

I will be writing down names as you respond to this, so leave your name, your email address and your blog address, and those of you who already said yes, please respond to this thread!

Mail your square to:
Laura Mazurek
PO Box 1145
Bandera, Texas 78003

Thanks so much, lets put our craftiness to use!

MUCH LOVE

peace,
laura
