"All That Jazz" Katrina Fundraiser Block..2005

As I've not got any quilty news, I thought you might like to see my fundraiser block for a quilt that was made and auctioned on Ebay to raise money for the survivors of the Katrina Hurricane.

I was very honoured to be asked to take part in making a block for this quilt.
The theme was to be "All That Jazz".
Gosh, it was 3 years ago already that we made the blocks,
Above is my block for the fundraiser quilt..
The beautiful colours of the New Orleans Mardi Gras was my inspiration.

19 well known crazy quilters were asked to work an 8 inch block. The 20th block was a winner’s block chosen by popular vote from blocks people donated. After a voting period the winner was announced on Christmas eve. There were enough donated blocks to make up another two quilts. All that Jazz # 1 is the main quilt and the other two quilts had been assembled from competitors blocks... You can see and read more here about the three quilts that were made and how much money was raised.

At last, it looks like summer has arrived, we are going to have a hot day today, a quick trip to the shops before the heat sets in..

  3. Thanks for sharing that. Can't believe it's that long. It looks familiar, so you must have showed it when you made it? Or someone did when it all came together.
