Over the past year, guild members created “red dress” blocks for a quilt to be donated to the American Heart Association. Sindy Rodenmayer of Fat Cat Patterns generously allowed us to use her pattern.
On Friday, February 23rd, The American Heart Association Go Red Campaign held their luncheon/ auction. Our quilt was auctioned off for $475. Thanks to all who contributed!
