Hope Quilt

This post was initially meant to promote this quilt and help sell it.  I am grateful and amazed to tell you that it SOLD just two days after listing it for sale on Etsy!  So instead I will simply tell you about the quilt.

I was asked by Intueri to make a quilt to help her raise money for Multiple Sclerosis Society.  She is running the New York Marathon and raising money in honor of her friend who has MS.    If you would like to donate, then direct message Intueri on twitter for details or as she puts it:

And, lastly, if you’d like to sponsor me for the New York City marathon (all proceeds will go to the MS Society), have your people call my people (here or here) and we’ll do lunch.

The quilt is 15 in X 23 in.  It is machine quilted and pieced.  This was my first attempt to do “letters.”  I enjoyed it.  The “lucky you” in the “H” is from a nephew’s old blue jeans.

Here is the back of the quilt.  There is a 4 in sleeve for hanging the quilt.

This photo is just to show the “lucky you” ribbon better.

For more information on Multiple Sclerosis please visit the MS Society website.
