Quilt Raffle - Ginger Jars

Some of you may recognize this quilt from a while back.
  I have tried to sell it but I am guessing put to big of a price tag on it.

  They say a person does that when they really don't want to sell something.

  I have loved loved this quilt,

 I have petted this quilt.

  At some point I thought to give it to someone special but thought differently.

Then I saw that a sweet friend of ours and her husband wanted to adopt a baby.

This is where I have to tell you about my sweet friend, I baby sat her and her sister when they were preschool age.  I loved them so much, Kami and her sister were so adorable.  We moved away and I always thought that if we had not have moved that they would have been my daughters for sure.

Well....

 Several of her friends had a garage sale for them.

 When I saw this, I wondered what I could do and so I asked if she wanted to raffle a quilt off.  

Apparently, she liked the idea ......


So....this quilt is being raffled off here
 
I know most of you are quilters and are probably saying that you can just make one yourself
 
 and you are right there....
 
but say there was a chance that you could do some good and maybe possibly win this quilt???

It is beautiful Barb! No wonder you were secretly trying to hold onto it :*) I have the pattern and plan to make one someday too.

Barb you are so very wonderful. And what a great way for this loving family to raise funds to help adopt a baby. I donated with great delight. I hope this quilt helps them raise money to bring a baby into their family very soon.

I love this way to help raise $$ for your friends' adoption. And what a wonderful thought of the goodness for the winner every time they enjoy the quilt.
