the rainbow connection.

So I suspect that many of you who read this blog don't know I am the president of the Sydney Modern Quilt Guild. I try to keep my personal and barely-professional lives separate but that is kind of an unavoidable fact. :) The guild is going strong now after two years and we are just now raffling off our first ever group quilt.

The Rainbow Connection.
You can see it in person if you want - it's at Kim Bradley Creations, in Castle Hill, NSW.

I stole this picture from Selina. SORRY NOT SORRY.Did I mention I LOVE this quilt? I do. I pieced hexagons for weeks months and I was the first person to make the cut when the blocks were all ready to be put together. Talk about scary. It is so beautiful and wonderful and I love it. I love that it took us so long to make it. I love that we were all complaining about sore fingers and that everyone had hexagons in their handbags and that we used an entire bolt of white fabric to make it. I love that Sel quilted it herself. I love that Marilyn bound it so beautifully in that black and white stripe fabric. I love that from so many hands, in the end, it came together under my Bernina, one row at a time. I am extremely fond of this quilt.

So I am asking you, my readers, to buy raffle tickets. I'll ship it to you, anywhere in the world, for free. If you live in Sydney I may even drive it over! You can have it by Christmas if you win it. Because as much as I love it, we want it to be even greater than it is. We want to raise money by raffling this quilt and donate that money to the YWCA in NSW. We want to be women who come together to help other women. From a place of creation, love, even sometimes frustration (!) to a place of giving back. Community. Caring. Quilting.That's what this is about.

If you're interested in raffle tickets, they are:

$3 each or 2/$5

You can send money through Paypal - just shoot me an email and I'll get an invoice to you straightaway.

I hope you win it.

Peace out!

Penny x
