It's that time of year again!!

What time of year you ask?  Why time for the U of M department of Pathology quilt raffle!!  I am showing you some photos in the Cardiovascular center of how we had them up and displayed on Thursday and Friday.

If you go to the department's website you will be able to view each quilt in full view and up close.  Those photos are so much better than mine!  The beautiful lone star was made by my friend, Robin and you should see the quilting LTW did on it!
My friend's Yuki and Judith made this sampler and LTW quilted each block differently!
This lighthouse quilt has light houses from Michigan cross stitched on each block.
The one on the far left was done by a woman who's boyfriend had a liver transplant and was so grateful!  It is a beautiful quilt.  See the green and white one?  That is the Spartan quilt!
These 2 are just awesome!  The Christmas one has lots of embellishments including a cameo on her blouse and earrings on her ears!  The kids one on the right was  BOM from a quilt shop in Saline.  It is simply a stunning quilt!!
Here is the Big Ten quilt that was a joint effort between me and 4 other women.  I appliqued all the centers and cut the blocks into "kits".  Then we all got together one afternoon and made the top and we gave it to LTW (who also made some of the blocks), so it was a very productive afternoon!  The big M string quilt you have all seen on my blog in the past.  The U of M fight song was quilted into the quilt!!  the little Jack-O-Lantern is a Buggy Barn design and just as cute as can be!
If you are interested in purchasing tickets they are $1 each or $5 for 6 tickets.  You can go to the Pathology web page and fill out and print out tickets.  You can send them to me in the mail.  The money goes to patient families at the U of M that are identified as being in need by the social work department.  If you are interested, please send me an email for my mailing address and I can tell you who to make checks to.  Each quilt has a number assigned to it and you choose which number you want your ticket to be for, one number per ticket.  So it is like 43 little raffles!!

In this economy every dollar counts to help those less fortunate than we are!  C'mon you know you want to help, and maybe win a beautiful quilt in the process!! (Maybe one I made!!)
