Relay for Life Rag Quilts

remember the fabric that was donated to me by Amy Butler Designs and Moda? here are the final products...

this rag quilt measures 45x53 and is made out of 3 sisters designs aster manor collection.

this rag quilt measures 47x53 and is made from amy butler designs midwest modern collection.

now the fun details... i'm raffling these 2 blankets off! tickets are only $1, and you can buy as many as you want. remember, the more you buy, the better your chances are :) 100% of the proceeds are being donated directly to the American Cancer Society Relay for Life event that is coming up in my city. if interested in purchasing a ticket, please leave me a comment WITH YOUR email address and how many tickets you want and i'll send you a paypal money request form. even if it's just 1 ticket, it still helps fight cancer! raffle ends saturday, the 17th, at noon. winner will be selected via random.org. good luck!

scissors... there is nothing worse than a horrible pair of scissors when you're working with fabric! i've made TONS of rag quilts in my life and i have always used the fiskar soft touch micro-tip scissors to cut the rags. but the last 2 pair i purchased i've notice aren't as sharp as i remember. so i started doing some research and came across these beauties...

they're the 6 1/2 inch rag quilt snips by heritage cutlery. they are the BEST scissors i've ever used! the spring loaded handle really makes it easy to snip away without aching your hand. the blade cuts all the way to tip and will go through many many layers of fabric at once. the pricetag is kind of steap, so find a coupon before you go purchase them :) and p.s. they're super sharp, i've almost taken off a finger a few times, lol.

thank you for doing this and how appropriate that our links are next to each other on Making the World Cuter. My son died of cancer about 5 1/2 years ago at 10 years old and tomorrow he would have been 16 years old. I did a little garden post today in his memory.
