Rebel with a Cause Fundraiser

Hey!  I know it’s been awhile since I blogged, but I’m back! Today’s post isn’t all about me and my quilty adventures.  OK, maybe just a little, but it’s so much more than that.  I’m sure you’ve seen the awesome Rebel quilt pattern by Libs Elliott on at least one of your social media feeds over the last year.  It’s an amazing pattern, and one that you should definitely put on your list of quilts to make if you haven’t already!  I loved the colors that Libs used in her original quilt, so I chose very similar colors when I made mine (see bottom of post for additional pictures). 
As much as I love this quilt, I’m giving it away.  My dude and I walked around Downtown Corvallis to take these shots on one of our very rare sunny February days. The proceeds of this fundraiser will be going to someone special who is fighting to live right now.  Her name is Christina Garrett, and she has been battling breast cancer for the last five years.  She was told in December that she has six months to live.    She and her husband, Curtis, are in Germany right now for last hope cancer treatment. 

All fundraiser details can be found at https://www.youcaring.com/christina-garrett-523896  Drawing will be held on March 21, 2016, when Christina & Curtis return from Germany.
