Bridges Charity

Last weekend a group of us braved the snow and headed to the Bridges "Love is in the Air" charity gala. Our beautiful quilt went at auction for $1,000. Wow! Bridges is a local charity that helps rehabilitate woman and children who are victims of domestic abuse. The $1,000 can help to fund a support group for 10 sexually abused children and their caregivers for 10 weeks. It can also educate 180 students at an area school about teen dating violence. We are so happy our quilt had gone for so much and to a great cause.


**  Fabric was donated by Hawthorne Threads ** 
We are very grateful for this generous donation and to all the quilters in the guild who helped. 

We used the X and + Tutorial at Badskirt, found here.

Rene, Beth, Patty, Lisa, Simone, Chelsea, Susie, Nancy, and Annick






We had a great night of eating, dancing, and fierce bidding wars. It was such a lovely night, thousands of dollars were raised and every one had a great time. Anyone want to take a guess at who was the craziest dancer? 

Many thanks to Beth for allowing us to accompany her at her table and being apart of something so great! I think her jaw dropped when the paddle went up for the quilt bid :) Then she started breathing again.

  1. Hi NHMQG members, could someone from your guild email me? I'd like your permission (and a higher res image) of your quilt to use in our game at QuiltCon. We'll be planning "Mod or Not?!", a game we made up where players guess the mod quilt from a pair of quilts, one mod (made within the last 10 years) and one that was made long before. Janneken Smucker, one of our board members, found your site and thought this quilt would be a great one to include in our game. My name is Amy Milne--you can reach me at amy.milne@quiltalliance.org. Thanks!!
