My local NOCC chapter is soliciting squares for one or more ovarian cancer quilts, to be raffled off at our September 5K. All proceeds will go to ovarian cancer research and awareness.
Any of you who might be interested in making a square, either for yourself or in memory of someone else, please let me know and I will get the info to you. No sewing required. You can fuse lace, appliques, etc to the fabric square with "Wonder Under." (Names must be embroidered, though - no paint or ink.) Photos transferred to fabric are encouraged, too.
The squares will be collected and professionally sewn together and quilted.
You can also write a note about your square, or the person you made it for. Those will all be bound into a "book" and given with the quilt(s).
I plan to make squares in memory of Linda Dorion, Jayne Armstrong and of course, Nancy Kavleski. I invite any of you artistic types to help out with this, anything from design suggestions to totally doing the whole square.
