Normal blogging will return tomorrow. The Ebay auction for All that Jazz quilts finished at All that Jazz no 1 raising $867.59, All that Jazz no 2 raising $310.98 and All that Jazz no 3 raising $325.00 which brings it to a tally of 1,503. 57!
Money raised on these quilts goes to Baton Rouge Area Foundation / FoundationsForRecovery.org which was set up to help people displaced by Hurricane Katrina.
The Gallery online as a permanent record of the project and I will up date it on the weekend and record how much was raised etc.
Once again I want to send out a big heartfelt thankyou to all those people who generously donated a block and those that gave their time. Without people willingly applying their skills to produce excellent handwork on their blocks the quilts themselves would not have had such a presence. An huge thanks goes out to Willa Fuller of In the Willawags who acted as our point of contact in America and sold the quilts for us. The instigators of this project are myself and Annie Whitsed of Annies Crazy World who acted as coordinators. Linda Barraclough of Chloe’s place acted as an advisor. I would have not been able to pull this project off without the help of Annie Whitsed of Annies Crazy World who assembled the quilts with the help of Canberra Crazy Quilters.
