What we ask is, if you enjoy the exhibition, make a donation to any breast cancer research foundation in your local city, anywhere in the world. Then let us know via a comment, and we will add it to our grand total. We are  having a button made, so you can spread the word, link back to us and help in our fundraising effort. Please feel free to blog about this, and let me know, and l will make a list of all who helped share the word. Our thanks to you all in advance.

We have had our first donation made on our behalf,  Kathie over at Inspired By Antique Quilts.
Now l just have to figure out how to make a list of names on the side bar.



  1. Linda,

  2. Hi Linda,
    Thank you so much for the most wonderful quilt show. It was the first time I'd visited Quilts in the Barn and everything about it was delightful. I'm glad it was such a success as a fundraiser too and I'll certainly make a donation and get back to you. I will put a link on my blog to help spread the word. Congratulations and thanks once again for all the effort you put into giving us all a wonderful time.

  3. Greetings from London Linda. So glad you have posted all the details of the quilts for me who never takes any notes.

  10. I know I'm going to run out of descriptive words!! The quilts are so beautiful. I especially love the strippy!!

  11. Oh, they are beautiful and thank you for all the detail about them. When I have picked my favorite, then I can buy the pattern! I look forward the future installlments, although I am sure the pictures do them no justice. They must have been stunning to see in person. Looking forward to the button, although I have blogged about it already.

  12. My favorite is the first quilt shown. I like points.

  13. What a great bunch of quilts for a a great cause! I Thanks for sharing them online. I don't make quilts, but I do use fabric for my artwork. I use very small pieces. Come see what I do with the scraps.
