My First Quilt for Aurora Colorado

This is my first completed project for getting 300 quilts to Aurora Colorado to help those affected by the tragedy that happened.  It is lap sized at 49 x 49, but I know it will warm someones heart to know we are thinking of them.

If you would like to donate, please see my Facebook site and all the quilts go directly to Aurora.  If you would like to get involved and don't have the funds for postage, I received a large check today to help with postage for people in need.  If it doesn't get used, I will send it to the center when all quilts are received.

I know people think we won't get 300, but I have faith in quilters all over the world and I know we can do this. After all a year ago, I personally sent 45 quilts to charities on my own.  Now, however I am a bit slower, but I have had one quilter make 4 quilts in the past 2 days.

Please know this is not a scam, all quilts go directly to Aurora:

This is certainly a great cause.

Yes, a great idea - I'm sure you will reach your target - quilters in particular are very kind hearted and generous.
