Win This Quilt (My Giveaway)

Hooray for Giveaways!! --
**I WILL ANNOUNCE THE WINNER ON FRIDAY Nov. 14.*** pls. cont. to sign in till then.

As I mentioned in my last post, I was asked to make a quilt in honor of a neighbor/friend who unselfishly donated her bone marrow to a stranger. To read the story, Click Here. My neighbors wanted to pay me for making the quilt and also for completing it on such short notice, but how could I accept any money for it knowing the reason behind it all? The women and other neighbors had gone around helping to collect money for their family and to also help pay for the quilt, but I rejected the money they offered and in turn gave the quilt to 'Brenda' as a gift from myself and everyone that came up with the idea to give a quilt and for those that cared enough to stop by and wish Brenda well.


Why give it away? As I said earlier, I was so moved by their actions and also by Brenda's generosity and selfless attitude, I too wanted to do something special,plus I love to share and consider myself to be a very giving person.
In the spirit of giving, I would like to offer this quilt for a special home. It will not be the one pictured, but it will be in the same pattern and in the color scheme of your choice. The wait is finally over. I didn't post pictures in my post about Brenda's quilt, because I wanted to save it for this giveaway. Here it is.


This was Brenda's Quilt:

Sorry it was windy earlier today, and I only had a few more short moments before the quilt would be taken so I had to hurry and snap what I could.


This took me 2 long gruesome nights, and an hour this afternoon to make.....here are some progress pics I took earlier.


Just the quilt-top. I finally finished piecing this baby at 2am on Sunday morning.


Ready for quilting. I spent all Sunday night quilting until 3am...my hands still hurt from gripping the quilt-top so hard. If you see an empty space in the middle, it was on purpose, it there so the well-wishers can leave their mark.


Binding was added and now a complete quilt!

Now just a couple more photos for me as a memory.





Can't you just imagine this quilt in you favorite quiet area, sitting room? or perhaps you knit like myself and have your special corner for knitting. I place my special quilts on this rocker....




Do you want a quilt just like this? Then ENTER! The winner will receive a quilt similar to the one above, but in the color scheme of your choice. The lap quilt measures 64"x64". The winner will be chosen on November 14.
Entering is really easy. Anyone can enter even non-bloggers and from wherever in the world, just be sure to leave me a good email to contact you if you are the winner. Make sure you leave a comment in this area good for one entry. Want to add more chances? Take the picture below, copy and paste and place in your sidebar, that's good for another entry. For two more entries, post about it on your blog. I do have a method of keeping track of all of your entries :)
Make sure you provide me with the link to your blog if you decide to post about or email me so that I can read it and tally up your entries. The winner will be selected using Random.org. I DO read every comment that comes my way and make it a point to visit yours as well so, GOOD LUCK everyone! Spread the word! I wish you all the best!

OMG, that quilt is gorgeous! I'm coming to your blog via the sew craft blog, and I love it! You make amazing things, I'm a fan. :):):)

I'd love to give my aunt a quilt like that!!! She's recieving dialysis because she's in renal failure. We're all being tested to see which one can be her donor. She's my mom's younger sister, and I know that my mom can't donate for health reasons. So in a way, if I get to help it's like it's an extension of my mom (so she's helping her in a way), I don't know, that's how I see it.

I quilt also, it's so soothing. Would you be able to tell me where I can find such a fabulous pattern? If I don't win it in this giveaway, then I'd love to make it for her. Quilts are so special, I know she'd love it.

Hugs,
Lory

Anonymous said...

I wondered where you've been... haven't seen you much on shannondale.org lately! Beautiful quilt and story, I'm proud to count such a generous person as a friend!

One of my best friends had leukemia in high school and none of her family was a match. I remember the huge registry drives and being soooo frustrated because they wouldn't test me, even with my parents' permission (I was still 16 and not a blood relative).

Once I turned 18 I started donating platelets and the Red Cross will pay for the bone marrow typing (at the time about $75) and will sign you up for the National Bone Marrow Donor Registry for free after like 3 donations. I would definitely encourage everyone to sign up for the Registry if they are considering it, you could save someone's life!

A lot of times, you just donate some blood...it's way more tramatic for the recipient than it is for you!

Bless you!

What a great story. I am very interested in this. I hae a co worker who came down with the same thing about a month ago. Yesterday he found out he will have to have a bone marrow transplant. First they will test his 7 siblings.

Then I'm sure his co-workers will go for testing if necessary.

You were very kind to the neighbors!

I posted a link on my blog too!

I am constantly surprised and delighted to hear stories such as this one. Abbie you are certainly a generous person, and a gifted quilter. I feel like I already won something just by hearing about someone willing to go through so much for a stranger. Bone Marrow transplants are not easy for either person. Brenda must also be an extraordinary person. Thank you for sharing. I really don't need another quilt, though I would be honored if I did win. I think I would have to return the favor and donate it to the Hunstman Cancer Institute for a patient in need.

Dianne said...

What a beautiful quilt and a beautiful gesture!!! I would love to be included and thank you so much!

Thanks for the kick in the bumb!

How very beautiful, the quilt and the tender care to a neighbor. I wouold love to win this quilt and give it to my grand daughter Cheyenne. She is 9 and going thru a rough time with her mom who is kicking some self destructive habits. It would remind Cheyenne that she is loved and precious every time she wrapped up in it.
Thankyou for being so inpiring and loving! terrywi@hotmail.com
