MD Anderson Ovarian Quilt Project
We are excited to announce information about the upcoming 2013 Online Quilt Auction.  Thanks to everyone who helped in the 2011 auction, we could not have done it without your help and generous support!
 
The 2013 auction will be different from previous years.  We are asking quilters to donate finished quilts this year.  Any size is great, from small wall hangings, table runners, lap to large bed quilts!  Any color or theme, original or tried and true designs. 
 
 If you have quilts needing a home please consider donating them. They can be made this year or in years past.  We just ask that they are finished quilts. The deadline for quilts is June 2013.  Please ask your guilds, quilt groups, and friends to consider making a quilt for the Ovarian Quilt Auction.  Please attach a quilt sleeve (pdf) to the back of the quilt so they are ready to hang.  And, fill out the Quilt Donation Form and send it with your quilt. 

Check out the photo below to see what we are working on for the auction! One of our customers Barbara B. donated these wonderful fat 1/4's. I think it is one of Robyn Pandolph's 1st lines for South Sea Imports, called "Hannah Bella." Hmm, what shall we do for the border? 

2013 online quilt auction  proceeds will benefit the Blanton-Davis Ovarian Cancer Research Program at The University of Texas MD Anderson Cancer Center, where together we can help find a cure for Ovarian Cancer. The 2011 auction raised over $40,000, let’s beat that amount for 2013!

Until the next post Happy Quilting!
