Please visit this for my Aunt Karen, this is her second year participating in the 3 day walk!!
Help me reach my goal for the Susan G. Komen Philadelphia 3-Day for the Cure!

Looking for donations

As I mentioned before, my Aunt Karen is participating in the Susan G. Komen 3 Day Walk for the Cure for breast cancer. This is her second year and just like last year, she is having a benefit fundraiser party and they have a silent auction. She asked me to make a quilt for the auction and of course I told her yes! I am thinking on doing an apple core quilt.

I think it would look great to make it out of a bunch of different pink print fabrics. I have a lot of pink fabric, but not enough to make an entire quilt. I plan on buying a few yards of various pink fabrics, but I'll also have to buy the batting, backing material and binding. I know I will need a lot of the pink fabric to make a decent sized quilt and my money will only go so far.

SO, if any of you have any cotton (not flannel) in pink prints and would like to donate them so I can sew them into a quilt, I will be forever grateful! For the size cores I am planning on making, I need the fabric pieces to be at least 8x7 or 8x8 or larger. Even if you only have a few pieces, I will take it! You can probably even fit them in a regular sized envelope and put 1 or 2 stamps on it.

I need to have the quilt done by April, I will have an exact date soon. So the sooner I get the pink fabric pieces, the better :)

So go through your fabric stash and see if you have any pink cotton fabric that you no longer need or use and send it to:

Jackie Hoffman
3111 N Sugan Rd
New Hope, PA 18938

We're hoping to get a few hundred dollars for the quilt and remember that ALL of the money from the quilt will go to my Aunt Karen's team called Team "SOB" (Save Our Boobies) for the 3 Day Walk for the Cure. To find out more about her team please visit: http://www.the3day.org/goto/kkarstetter. If you can't donate any fabric, then consider making a money donation to her team.

Thank you and PLEASE feel free to repost this as much as you can so the word can get around. If I get more fabric than I need, I will turn the rest into matching apple core patchwork pillows to go with the quilt for the auction, which will hopefully bring in more money for her team.
