How cool is this?

These are all the Tribute to Danny quilt blocks.

Each and every block was made and sent by a bunch of my wonderful blog readers.I could never thank you enough for your kindness and generosity. YOU made this project possible. 

The sashing, border, backing and binding fabrics have been purchased, washed and ironed. I will be piecing them all together next Tuesday. This afternoon Jammer and I are heading to Vietnamese Culture Camp for the weekend. It promises to be a fantastic weekend. Hubs and Sunshine will be hanging together at home. Lots of Daddy & daughter time which is very much needed.

My long arm quilter is again going to do a rush job on this for me. She is such a doll to understand the importance of my recent projects and do whatever she can to make sure I meet my deadline.

I created a draft picture of what the final quilt will look like in Excel to go along with the raffle tickets and the sales of them are starting today.  Everyone involved with the softball tournament and the memorial scholarship fund is hoping this quilt raffle raises a record amount of money this year. It will be a fitting way to help honor my nephew, by raising enough money for the scoreboard and the annual scholarships. Those of you new to my blog, if you'd like to read the original post about this project, it can be found here.

For those of you that contributed to this project, you all should be given an award for helping me make this idea a reality. I could have never have done it without each and every one of you!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!

10 of you added your own colorful comments:

  1. You know, I wouldn't mind purchasing a raffle ticket or few for this quilt. Any chance of your softball team setting up a paypal account to sell raffle tickets online? You do have a big audience of people who love quilts. . .

    1. That is so generous of you Ann. I hadn't thought of that before but I am more than willing to sell raffle tickets to anyone who is interested. I will have some by the weekend and as soon as I know how much they are selling for, I will update this post. Thanks for the offer.
