Thank you Sisters Outdoor Quilt Show and High Desert Frameworks for the 8th Annual Wish Upon a Card fundraiser for Wendy’s Wish* of St. Charles Foundation (in honor of Wendy S. Huntley who died from cancer).
W: working for early detection; I: increasing cancer awareness; S: supporting each personal journey; H: helping improve the quality of life for others. The money goes towards helping cancer patients and their families with non-medical expenses. It’s a GREAT cause!
The Wish Upon a Card fundraisers have raised over $70,000 in the first 7 years!!! You can help raise more money by donating or purchasing hand made fiber art postcards (see http://www.sistersoutdoorquiltshow.org/ for more information). The postcards are 4″ by 6″ and generally CAN be mailed with first class postage.
NOTE: My postcards really are 4″ by 6″, without distorted sides. I just can’t take good photos.
I’ve donated postcards just about every year. This year, as a Quilter’s Affair instructor, I’m donating my “Yellow Fever” postcard for the teacher auction.
I also made a card with for the Michael Miller Fabric Challenge. I used both colorways of the challenge fabric.
I’m also donating a few extra cards. I upcycled some leftovers to make the Rainbow card. And I still have a limited supply of the Hoffman flower fabric, so I cut a few more rabbits. Notice how the placement creates the face, ears and body. I love these cards!
I am making Chinese New Year cards with all 12 animals. I must have given away my Year of the Rabbit- or it went missing on its own. So here is my replacement Year of the Rabbit card, using Echino fabric for the background.
