Peri has a beautiful granddaughter named Katy who has cystic fibrosis. Each year a quilt is raffled to raise money to fight cystic fibrosis - Katy's Hope Quilt Raffle.
This year I was the winner of this gorgeous quilt that was pieced and quilted by Judy Laquidara and so generously donated to Katy's Hope. I'll tell you -- the tears were flowing as I opened the box and read the lovely card from Dana, Katy's mother.
I made a decision tonight that my donations, as big or as small as they may be this year, will be to the Cystic Fibrosis Foundation. I will contact Peri to thank her for the quilt, and to also ask her for a good link for donations that I will make throughout the year. I'll come back in and add that link when I get it.
EDIT: The link is Katy's Great Strides.
I sincerely hope that everyone reading this blog, and who will go to Peri's blog and watch the video of Katy, will find it in their hearts to make a donation. Only through funding for research will this horrible disease be wiped off the face of the earth!
Judy, thank you also for donating this absolutely stunning quilt! You have a wonderful heart!
