Please Help Me To Help Them

I had not intended to write a post today, but I had a meeting earlier that I need to tell you about.  I'm hoping after you've heard, you'll be willing to help by making a square for a quilt that will be auctioned.  A few weeks ago, I agreed to participate in the Leukemia & Lymphoma Society's Man & Woman of the Year Competition.  I'm not really sure why, in that moment, I agreed to do it, but I'm sure the reason will be made clear to me at some point in the near future.  The title of Man/Woman of the Year goes to the man and woman that raise the most money.  I don't intend to win because I'm not a great fundraiser.  I just want to help this organization. 

As a candidate for Woman of the year, I'm raising funds in honor of the 2013 Boy of the Year, Matthew Wilson (Matty).  Matty was originally diagnosed with acute myeloid leukemia (AML) in June of 2010 when he was just 17 months old.  After a successful six-month chemotherapy regimen, Matty enjoyed 13 months of remission.  Upon relapsing, Matty benefited from life saving research through a clinical trial drug that was indirectly funded through the Leukemia & Lymphoma Society (LLS), which saved his life.  Matty received his bone marrow transplant on May 1, 2012 by way of a partial match from his father.  Now 3 years old, Matty has a long road ahead of him, but he is hopefully on his way to living a long, healthy, and happy life with his family and the many people that have come to love him for the brave warrior that he is.

This is Matty sick.



This is Matty well.


I'm asking all of my quilter friends to please help kids like Matty by donating one wonky log cabin square towards a quilt that will be auctioned of at our Grand Finale Gala on Thursday, May 23, 2013 at The Chesapeake Bay Beach Club.  I'd like this quilt to be at least a generous sized lap quilt, if not bigger.  LLS's colors are red and yellow, so I'm asking that you use any shades of those colors and white as a neutral color.  Please make your block(s) at least 8 inches. Here's a great tutorial on how to make a wonky log cabin block.  I'm hoping the end result will be a scraptastically bright and happy quilt that will cause people to bid high and raise lots of money for LLS.

The deadline for squares is April 22nd.  So as to not put my home address out in the blogosphere, I'll be getting a post office box specifically for this project.  I'll post the address in the next few days.

Thanks in advance for your help!

    1. Jane,
      I have to come up with 10 auction items that are worth at least $100. You have a few options. You could weave me a basket that I could then fill with something. I could teach you to sew. Or you could help me pick fabric for a Jane square that I could make for you. Let me know what you want to do. If you weave a basket, your donation would be tax deductible.

      Delete
    2. Okay, it's gone. A basket, for sure, with red and yellow reed accents. I will fill it.
      I have fabric for The Jane Square.

      Delete
    3. We can talk about shape, etc. I may try to make it look quilted.

      Delete
    4. Done! Thanks for the idea. And my basket is almost ready for the auction.

    1. Tracy, I will make a quilt with whatever I have. I think I have at least 25 squares now (I haven't counted yet) and that will work fine with the use of lots of negative space. The more squares I get, the more creative I'll be able to be. :)

At first when i met dr ben lod i was thinking he also wants to scam me off my money, But he told me to give him a chance that what will he gain if he adds pain to my pain,That all he want his my happiness. So i decided to give him a chance, and he told me that bree will be back to my arms within 48hours,i said okay truly when dr ben lod casted this spell my lover bree called me and said he wanted to tell me something i was shocked, He told me that i should forgive her, That he loves me with all his heart and promise never to leave me. Dr ben lod also told me that ones bree comes back to me he is going to buy me a gift. bree Bought me a Brand New Car, And i also had access to his account to prove to me that he will never leave me.

  32. My name is cornellia, am from UK I live in Canada, I have been married for
    over 5years and no issue(baby) to show for it, I and my husband have gone
    to different places for help for me to get pregnant, but all our efforts
    where fruitless. My husband became tired of me and started accusing me of
    the cause of our problem. I tried to make him believe that I don’t know why
    I cannot get pregnant. But as a man he pays deaf ears to my words. It came
    to a time when he gave me an ultimatum to leave his house. I became more
    crazy and restless. I search for help including where there is no help. My
    husband finally sent me packing after 5years of our marriage. when I was in
    my parents’ house I was still searching for a solution until I met an old
    school friend whom gave me the contact of this spell caster Dr odion, she
    said he saved her marriage too. I contacted him for help. He told me that
    it is never too late that I will need two spell in one. Which means an ex
    back spell and a fertility spell. He actually cast a spell for me after
    48hours of his spell; my husband came to my parents’ house looking for me.
    We got back together again. That made me so happy. Still with his fertility
    spell, I became pregnant after 2months of his spell. What a powerful man. I
    am the happiest person on earth. If you need any help, I recommend this
    great man to you, I am so sure he will help you the way he helped
    me.drodionspelltemple @gmail. com
