Sandy Hook Quilt ~ Dedication Update Information

We are approaching the 5 month mark of the terrible tragedy that happened at Sandy Hook Elementary School in December 2012.  As some of you may remember, one of my kind friend's in the quilting world came up with the idea of making an angel quilt for the 26 lives that were senselessly lost.  Her name is Sally of Sally's Quilting Corner, she took all of the blocks I made, herself and others from the USA and pieced and quilted it together.  As you know this quilt has been made for months, and we couldn't wait to place it into the hands of those hearts we hope to be touched by it.  Things were delayed due to snow, illness and even more tragic events.  Well, the time has come that is the right time to hand over this loving quilt. 
This special quilt will be dedicated on Sunday, May 19, 2013 at the YPD 5K Race (Yarmouth Police Department) that is being held at the Skipper Restaurant in South Yarmouth on South Shore Drive.  This is the 6th year that the YPD will be hosting this popular event.  There will be very special guests at this event like the father of one of the children lost at the Sandy Hook School shooting and one of the many heroes that helped save lives at the Boston Marathon Bombing and you can read more about it at Sally's website here is another update.  It is an event that I personally won't be able to attend because of a previous commitment, but my heart felt desire to help dedicate this special quilt will be there.

PS...Here is a link to some of the angel blocks I made for this quilt, 13 in all.
