Judy Tenen gave a presentation for Quilt for a Cause. They accept donations of quilts, and then sell them to raise money for breast and gynecological cancer research. The money stays local to the Tucson area. The next big auction will be October 2019, but quilt sales continue throughout the year. Judy shared that smaller, wall-hanging or lap-size, quilts do best.
On of the donated quilts for sale.
We had a lot to show this month. And there were a few tears shed as gifts were presented to members facing health challenges.
The blocks were made during the retreat in January. This one was gifted to Gayle.
And this second one was gifted to Kristi.
