Please see the beautiful quilts that one of our mommy bloggers, Rachael Dorr, has created. Rachael is auctioning them off to support ‘Quilting A Memory’. This is a charitable organization that provides free quilting services to the families of fallen service men & women. Her message, and the incredible quilts she is auctioning, are below…

Hi there – I just wanted to let you all know about an auction & giveaway on my website. These are super, super cute and engaging quilts for little people. Perfect for Christmas. There are hundreds of items for your little ones to spot in each quilt. I hope to be able to raise a few $’s for Quilting a Memory. Please make sure to enter the giveaway & leave a message on the posts comment box. I would really appreciate it if you were able to spread the word at all.

I have finished all three I Spy Quilts. Two of them are now up for auction. The smaller one will be a giveaway. (Please note this giveaway is for shipping within the US only.)

Each quilt comes with a list of lots of fun things you can try and spot in the quilts. My children are totally enchanted with these quilts. I will post more about how I quilted them again soon.

PROCEEDS:

All funds from the auctions will be donated to ‘Quilting A Memory’. This is a charitable organization that provides free quilting services to the families of fallen service men & women – using their clothes/uniforms to make beautiful & detailed quilts that can be treasured for ever by the family. Materials for a Queen sized quilt typically come to approximately $130. It would be wonderful to raise something around this amount by selling these two quilts.

Please bid on the quilts – these links will take you to their listings on eBay. Auctions & Giveaway will end on Sunday December 15th and I will mail the quilts on Monday 16th.
