If you've been a long-time reader of my blog, you know that my friend Janet Hanley and I designed a quilt as a fund-raiser for the Somerville Homeless Coalition. Members of the Proper Bostonian Quilters Guild joined us in making the star blocks for the quilt. Some of the stars have a log cabin block as the central block. It's a delightful design and the quilt's colors are bright and cheerful. Janet sewed the completed blocks of the quilt together and we quilted it on a long-arm at Bits n' Pieces Quilt and Fabric Shoppe in Pelham, NH.
The Burren Backroom Series, with Brian O'Donovan of WBGH's Celtic Sojourn, is hosting a funding raising event for the Somerville Homeless Coalition in Davis Square, Cambridge, MA on December 3, 2014. They are selling raffle tickets for the quilt now and the drawing will be done that evening. Click on the link above and scroll down the page to the Benefit for Somerville Homeless Coalition to see some of the fabulous musicians who will playing that evening.
