Your Help Needed

Is this not the cutest little quilt you have ever seen? Holly over at Lakehouse Quilts has created this darling fabric panel. She has challenged a number of her best quilt industry friends to come up with their version of a quilt using the fabric. She has been show casing their talent over on her blog. Amazing! Run on over there and take a peek. I'll wait for you......... Back? Ok! Aren't they the cutest?

Here is where your help is needed. This past year Ireland has been devastated by floods and the wonderful folks at Quilt Irish magazine are doing their part to help. You can read about it here. The darling quilt above was put together by none other than Elizabeth of Late Bloomer Quilts. She has a warm spot in her heart for all things Irish and Scottish, having Irish heritage herself. To help out she is putting her quilt up for auction. Whoever is the high bidder will send their winning bid directly to the specified agency and Elizabeth will send you the quilt. That is a win, win situation if I've ever heard of one. So if you can, go to Elizabeth's blog and bid.

If you cannot bid but would like to help out, go here. There are other things you can do to help.

A big thank you ahead of time for all of your help and a GREAT BIG HUG AND THANK YOU to Elizabeth. When you put quilters and bloggers together you get perfection!

Jean, The quilt is beautiful. It reminds me of the ones my Irish granny made a long time ago. She loved rick rack trim! Thanks for informing me about the flooding...I was not aware. I love Ireland and the people are so friendly and kind.
Thanks again. Yvonne :)
