BENEFITING: Blood Water Mission
EVENT DATE: Mar 31, 2013
This is a raffle for the "Living Water Quilt" shown in the pictures. (named by one of my blog readers!)
The quilt measures 102" x 102". I took the first picture leaning off the top of the staircase.
King size with wool blend batting. Hand quilted over an eternity. I think I started this quilt in 2006 (but don't hold me to that...I'm really not sure!) All fabrics are 100% cotton.
This quilt design was inspired by Kaffe Fassett.
This quilt was made for my Dad to fit his king size bed and satisfy his long-standing love for the color orange. After much prayer and soul-searching I know that this quilt is no longer for Dad. It is destined for another mission.
My heart has been breaking lately for communities around the world that do not have access to clean drinking water. It's hard for my brain to even wrap around this concept having lived my entire life with clean running water available in my home. I've never even had to walk outside to get it! There are places where people walk miles each day with jugs to get water for their family. Guess what?--many times the water that they are gathering isn't even clean.
So with all that in mind, this quilt will be raffled in an attempt to raise money for a well in Africa.
I had to choose an amount for the fundraising goal. $7,000 seems like a crazy huge amount, but I feel God nudging me to choose a number that is impossible without HIM!
For every $10 that you donate to Blood Water Mission your name will go into the hat to win this quilt.
