Huge Thanks!

I belong to most all of the crazy quilting groups that have been formed on-line. One of these, Crazy Quilting International deserves a HUGE round of applause! I am soooo very touched by these wonderful people!

This is the story..... I went to the http://www.makingmemories.org/ site not long ago and volunteered to make a quilt for them out of donated wedding dresses. Quilts are returned, completed and then auctioned off. The proceeds then are put towards research for breast cancer. This is one of my pet charities as it has affected me on a personal level. Anyway, the HUGE box arrived from them, complete with DIFFERENT time lines for completion!!! OMG!! So, I asked my local group of cquer's AND folks at CQI if they could help! The response has been overwhelming! These stitching soul mates from around the world have stepped up to the plate and offered their time, skills and creativity to help me put this together! Just AWESOME!! These ladies deserve a HUGE round of applause, thanks and HUGS!!! Thank you, thank you! Your generosity is overwhelming and I am crying tears of joy that this project will be able to come together!

CQI girls ROCK!!
