Together, this quilt raffle has raised
$5,900 $6,200 or Ukraine! You guys are amazing!
Please check the list of raffle ticket purchasers below.
Not everyone specifically mentioned the raffle, but if you didn’t specifically indicate the donation was for squares/blocks, I made the assumption that your donation was for the raffle.
If you should be on the list but you’re not, let me know. If you’re on the list but you didn’t buy raffle tickets – it’s possible that you intended your donation to “buy” squares/blocks – so please let me know that, too!
Also, not everyone included their nym, in which case I tried to use some discreet version of your nym in the nym field. So if you donated for the raffle but you don’t see your nym on the list, please check for something resembling your name in the nym field.

Update at 5:00 pm: I had missed a couple of people. List has been updated!
Great job and big thanks to Quiltingfool and Watergirl!
When are the raffle results?
That’s a lotta dough!
Side note: I haven’t been able to use anything but text for the dialogue box since this morning. Latest Firefox on Android mobile.
@Fair Economist: Folks have 24 hours to confirm that the list is correct.
After that, we can go through the process to determine the winner.
Plus, that gives me 24 hours to get some work done for the clients I have been mostly ignoring since last Thursday. :-)
Then I’ll figure out the process for assigning random numbers and then selecting one.
*I am still in triage mode, just trying to keep everything moving.

That’s awesome!! This place is fantastico.
When do we pony up for our Patron and other quilt squares?
And: way to go, generous jackals.
Confirmed – thank you!
@Elizabelle: You can pony up any time for the blocks/squares.
Just forward your ActBlue receipt to me and note that it’s for blocks. I will file it in my “quilt blocks” folder.
But we won’t be taking specific “orders” for blocks until after the raffle is over. Since bigger blocks or more complicated blocks cost more, it might make sense to wait until we are taking “orders”.

I’m on the list, which is right where I should be.

Congratulations to QuiltingFool and WaterGirl, and many thanks for all you guys do! Not amazing, here, but remarkable and wonderful. And thanks to everyone who entered the raffle!! You guys rock!
@Joy in FL: Confirming that I got your two separate donations. I have you on the list once, but I have both your tickets.
I want 17 to be my random number.
This is awesome – but I do not see either my name or nym in the list, so here is the notification (4 raffle tix for me!)
@WaterGirl: Thank you.
Well done, to you and QuiltingFool, for these beautiful pieces.
@eponymous: Hi there.
Did you (or can you) forward your ActBlue receipt to me by email?
watergirl at balloon-juice.com is my email address.
What excellent news! Good luck to all ticket holders.
@eponymous: And this is why we have these posts, to catch anything that might have fallen through the cracks!
I did! And you acknowledged it. Understandable that something fell through the cracks, so I can do it again if you want.
I would also like to say thanks for all you do, and thanks to QuiltingFool for the beautiful artwork so generously donated.

Is “eric” me? I tried to buy two raffle tickets as “E.G. for example”; we traded emails on July 17. Thanks!
@E.G. for example: Yes!
I did not see your nym in your email message. Apologies if it was there and I missed it.
edit: I just updated the list.
@eponymous: Yes, as you will see from my email reply, I did have your original message but it didn’t get the Quilt Raffle tag.
Glad you caught my error! That’s why I put these up. I am careful, but not perfect! :-)
QuiltingFool is amazing. (I too want to capitalize the F in fool, even though she does not!)
I think before we’re through – between this last auction and the raffle and the blocks – that she will have raised about $10k this time around.
And it was $5k for the first auction (including misc donations, even one $500 one as I recall).
That’s a lot of dough for Ukraine, from one generous soul with a whole lot of artistic talent.
A former employer would say…”$50 here, $50 there, before you know it, that’s REAL MONEY (and he would know as he had a shitload of it).

@WaterGirl: Two raffle tickets– exactly right. Thanks for confirming : )
I’m a bit late to the thread, sorry! I am humbled by the generosity of everyone here, so glad I found this place.
I haven’t checked in today, as I was working on some Patron squares and I made a different one (Patron is standing). I like it, maybe some of you will like it, too! I’m hoping to have the new block finalized tomorrow so I can send Watergirl a photo.
Thanks to everyone for raising so much money! Slava Ukraini!
@Joy in FL: I didn’t think it would be right to publish the number of tickets that everyone had purchased, but I thought it was okay to clarify yours since you had gotten one raffle ticket, twice!
Is it too late to purchase a ticket?

Every quilt and block is stunning!
I’m on the list! Thank you!
Listing to the left.
There is an interpretable resemblance to one of the names listed and my own.
THANK YOU! This is truly wonderful.
@RedDirtGirl: Sadly, I think it is too late. :-
Midnight last night was the deadline.
@RedDirtGirl: You’ll get another chance! I’m not done, I’m in for the long haul. Our brothers and sisters in Ukraine are fighting for their freedom, and I’ll help any way I can. I know I’m not alone!
Loved that quilt, but didn’t buy a ticket because I couldn’t give it a good home. I never win anything, but didn’t want to risk it. Anxiously waiting for the quilt block event.
These quilts are beautiful l thank you so much for sharing them with us!
@sab: It would suck if the one time you finally won something… you couldn’t keep it!
