Charity Quilt for MSA

Last night, The Whacky Ladies came over to my house despite the rain, and we had a great time together.

I just had to take a picture of my strawberry cake, since I rarely bake anymore.

We were a little short on Show-and-Tell this month, but this quilt was the star of the show.

At our January meetings, we typically work on charity quilts.  Usually everyone makes one quilt to give to Quilts for Kids or Quilts on Wheels through the Capital Quilters Guild.  This year, everyone worked on this project, to be raffled off this fall for the Multiple Sclerosis Society.

Lori headed up this project with her own fabrics.  The others helped cut and sew the patches for the blocks.  Lori will quilt it on her longarm after adding one more narrow border.

The raffle winner will be announced in New Bern at the conclusion of the fund-raising bike ride.

Bike MS is a 2-day cycling event that raises funds to support people living with multiple sclerosis in North and South Carolina and throughout the United States. Money raised through this event funds MS research, programs, services, and advocacy. In 2012, over 2,100 participants raised $1,714,476 to create a world free of MS. This year, our goal is to raise $1.8 million!
Bike MS cyclists enjoy two full days of riding through rural eastern North Carolina. Each day, cyclists can choose to ride 30, 75, 50 or 100 miles on fully-supported routes. At the conclusion of each day's ride, cyclists are greeted by cheerful volunteers, a delicious, hot meal, ice cold beverages, and live entertainment. It's a great time, you should join us!
Bike MS will take you further than you’ve ever gone before. It’s not the miles that matter — it’s the unforgettable journey. Join us for an event that’s more than a ride — it’s anticipation, camaraderie, personal accomplishment, and the knowledge that you’re changing lives… making every mile that much sweeter.
Don’t just ride, Bike MS.
