Remember a couple of weeks ago when we told you about Marianne Fons and her Libby’s Log Cabin quilt? (If not, you can read about it here.) Marianne stitched the quilt from Moda’s Collections for a Cause Community line, which is benefitting Libby as she recovers from a stroke.
We just wanted to let you know that there is a lucky winner. At the end of the day on February 13, Marianne put the names of all those who contributed funds into a stocking hat and selected Anne Nee of Milwaukee. Congratulations, Anne!
Marianne wanted to thank everyone for contributions that ranged from $10 to several hundred dollars, including a $500 donation from a family friend. One donor wrote to Marianne “Libby stepped in to lecture for me when my mother died, then made sure the lecture fee went to me. It was $350, so that’s the amount I’m sending to Cathy Arnold [Libby’s sister] for Libby now.”
Wow! We knew quilters were a giving bunch, but that story really shows how it all comes full circle. In the end, 61 people donated $4066. On behalf of Libby and all her sisters, Cathy wrote, “We thank all for what they have done for Libby! The funds will really make a significant difference in her recovery. Bless you!”
