"My son, who is a fishing guide, and my husband, Doug are involved with the CCA (Coastal Conservation Association), which is an organization trying to save and protect the salmon and steelhead. The Tillamook Chapter of CCA holds a banquet in the spring to make money for the Oregon Chapter of CCA. This banquet has a auction, which is mostly fishing gear relates, but also has art prints and other items. The banquet is attended largely by fishermen and their wives. I was asked by my son, Travis, who is also the banquet chairman, last year if I would make a "guys" quilt for the auction in 2014."
How can I possibly turn this down? I had my own McKenna Ryan pattern quilt top ready to quilt, but hadn't worked up the nerve to start it yet. This project got mine finished, so that I would feel like I knew what I was doing for Judee's.
I hope that the quilt will raise a lot of money for such a great cause. Although I haven't yet met Judee in person,we have a plan to meet at the local fabric store when either she is in Portland, or I am in Tillamook. I am sure that she is a lovely person to make such a beautiful quilt, and then to give it away.
