I read over on Erin Russek’s blog earlier this week, that’s she’s created this gorgeous dresden plate with appliqué pattern and all proceeds from sales are going to help a little girl, Miss Kyra, and her family in need from Erin’s local community.
Erin is one of the most generous quilters I know and I wanted to lend some support too. I was very touched by Kyra’s story. So, I purchased six copies of Erin’s pattern, all proceeds are going to Kyra’s family. I’ll be keeping one pattern for myself and have five to give away here.
I don’t know about you, but I feel guilty that I don’t have the time in my life right now to offer more support to the wonderful quilting charities out there. So, when I see an opportunity that I can do a small part to help, I’m happy to do it.
Erin is selling her pattern for just $5.00… a steal if you ask me. You can find it in her Etsy Shop. I’d like to encourage you all to purchase the pattern and help support Kyra.
I have five copies to give-away. If you purchase the pattern yourself, awesome! Still enter my give-away. If you win a copy from me, give it away to one of your own blog readers or to a friend.
You don’t have to purchase Erin’s pattern to enter my give-away … it’s just a suggestion! To enter my give-away, leave a comment below telling me if do any charity quilting or help out others in your local community. Again, it’s not a requirement that you do charity work to win … I just love reading your stories.
Thanks to Erin for her generosity.. it’s quilters like her that make me smile and love the quilting community.
I’ll pick my five winners next Friday, March 16th.
Winners have been notified and sent the PDF pattern. Congratulations to:
