Ovarian Cancer Rearch Funded by Quilts


A Taste of Summer 2
16" x 20"
 
This is my contribution to the MD Anderson Quilt on-line auction to benefit ovarian cancer research.  Quilts of all sizes and styles are welcomed through May 2013.  The auction will be October 23 to November 6, 2013.  Please consider donating a quilt.  It can be a small or large art quilt, lap quilt, bed quilt or simply make some blocks as suggested on their site.  At present, there is no good way to detect ovarian cancer until it is in an advanced stage.  One of the primary goals is to discover a way to detect ovarian cancer in an early stage.

Mailing Package with Donation Form
 
Everything is padded and then enclosed in plastic.  I am having a more difficult time mailing this year because I put my quilt on a stretched canvas.  It was necessary because I needed to support the 'skirt' part of the dress.

The direct link to the donation site is below.
