Two Ukraine Quilts from Quiltingfool on Sunday – One Auction / One Raffle
Let’s hear from the quilter herself!
Making quilts is my passion. Making quilts gives me purpose: I get to be creative, I get to be challenged, I get to be joyful.
Every day I read the reporting on the war in Ukraine, here on Balloon Juice and on other internet sites. From the first day this of this atrocity, I could only think about Ukrainians and how their lives changed in an instant. I am angry that this still happens – that we, the human race, haven’t evolved away from constant war and the terrible price it demands. I feel so helpless. I don’t know how to give Ukrainians, well, to all people in the world, the freedom from want and fear.
I knew I wanted to make make more than one donation quilt for Ukraine, so here are the two latest quilts – one for auction and the other for the raffle.
I thank you all, and blessings be upon you all!
Stars & Sunflowers
“Slava Ukraini” and “Glory to Ukraine” are both stitched on the front.
Let the auction begin!
Minimum opening bid is set at $450.
And the winner is… the people of Ukraine. (That’s all we know so far!)
