A Very, Very Worthy Cause

Perry is a fellow quilt blogger.  She lives in Oklahoma, a neighboring state for me, and she has Louisiana connections so I’ve been reading her blog for quite some time, and feel a bond, even though we’ve never met in real life.

Perry’s precious granddaughter has cystic fibrosis.  In previous years, Perry has made a quilt and a raffle has been held to raise money for the Cystic Fibrosis Fund.  A month or so ago, I read on Perry’s blog that due to “life”, she had not had time to make a quilt for a fundraiser this year.  I had several quilts here that had no destination so I offered her one and she chose this one.

The binding was on but the handwork wasn’t done so Perry did that part.  The quilt is 70″ x 88″ and is quilted with an overall feather.

Here’s the picture from Perry’s blog . . the quilt is finished!  The colors in Perry’s picture are more accurate than in my picture (halogen light at my house).

Please go to Perry’s post regarding donations, and watch the little 3 minute video of Perry’s granddaughter.  Those dimples!  She will certainly capture your heart. The video is very educational about life with CF.  I had no idea!

If you are able to make a donation, I know that precious family would so much appreciate the quilting community’s support of this very worthy cause. The video states that almost .90 of every dollar goes toward programs and drug development.  That’s a good percentage!  And, CFF receives no federal funding.

Thanks to anyone who can make a donation!

    Thank you Judy! Every bit helps, and there are strides being made in finding cures for this “awful stuff”, thanks mostly to fund raisers such as this one.
