Breast Cancer Awareness Charity Quilt Project

October is approaching fast and October is Breast Cancer Awareness month. My eBay quilting group is combining our efforts to make a wonderful rag quilt to be auctioned off in early Oct.

Our Susan G. Komen auction raised just over $100 for this important cause in 2008. I hope 2009 will be an even better year. Last year's auction was in honor of my late mother, who lost her 5 year battle with Stage 4 breast cancer in Oct. 2004.

I know SGK raises funds through a variety of events. What makes our auction special? It is a handcrafted keepsake made by a group of women, most whom have never even met each other, yet have a common bond of quilting and so much more, the bond of sisterhood.

Stay tuned for details and photos. Our auction will be live in early Oct.

Thank you for this post. It's a reminder that I need to check the date my mammogram.
