Busting to Quilt

Wisteria Girls

Wisteria Rambling
ooooh what an exciting day, and so many other things I should be doing. I feel very humbled to have been asked along with my sister Tracey Browning earlier this year to be a part of the 2007 Quilt for a Cure 'Busting to Quilt' project in conjunction with Universal magazines and Lloyd Curzon Fabrics..

As the designers for the programme we designed and made two quilts using Quilt for a Cure fabric ranges. They were published in the September issues of Homespun and Quilters Companion with many stores participating with fabric kits. Portions of all fabric sales went to the National Breast Cancer Foundation. Too add to the donation our two quilts are now to be auctioned on ebay with all proceeds going to the charity. Having a close friend of my mothers just diagnosed last week with Breast Cancer (and a long time family friend, mother of my debutante partner) the issue of Breast Cancer is always close at hand. I am sure none of us has escaped an association with it, be it personally or through a family member or friend. I am honoured to be able to donate a small amount of my time to assist in any way I can.

So for your chance to win the original quilts as featured in the magazines dont forget to go to ebay on the 1st November. Details can be found on the Quilters Companion blog (just found this, Im going to add it to my favourites) or here.
hugs again, feelgood emotions from me to you
