This bright, happy quilt is a special one, and it could be making its way to your home soon because I'm giving it away! My good friend Jennifer has been working tirelessly the past few months to raise funds for leukemia and lymphoma research. She lost both her father and her grandfather to leukemia, and now she's fighting to help a precious little girl named Lucy win her battle against this dreadful disease. You can read all about her story and her goal right here.Doing what I do, I thought a quilt giveaway might be the best way to help her get closer to reaching her goal. To enter the giveaway, all you have to do is follow the instructions on the Rafflecopter widget below. (Due to the laws of Missouri, I cannot require a purchase or donation for the chance to win the quilt. However, I strongly encourage you to make a donation to Jennifer's page before entering the giveaway. All of the donations will go directly to the Leukemia and Lymphoma Society, which is working hard to rid the world of blood cancers. Every dollar helps, and donations of any size are gratefully accepted.)

The Cascade Quilt pattern was designed by Kristi Schroeder of Initial K Studio, who graciously agreed to let me use the pattern to make this giveaway quilt. The quilt is made of 100% cotton solid fabrics (32 Kona and Moda Bella colors, plus a Moda Bella white) and 100% cotton batting. The backing is a Doe wideback by Carolyn Friedlander. I quilted it using Aurifil white thread and bound it by machine for durability (the binding fabric is Libs Stitches in Iron from Blueberry Park by Karen Lewis). The quilt measures approximately 52" x 64", a wonderful throw size. Thank you for donating!
