Please go check them out. There's a ton of talent, it's all for a good cause & you might see some familiar faces!


In 2012, the Meridian Marathon raised and distributed $17,500 for the Alzheimer’s Association and local charities. This was accomplished through the first LEO Run to Remember, Meridian Marathon & ½ Marathon. Prizes for the top male & female runners in the Marathon and ½ Marathon were small art quilts donated by a local artist & quilter.

The second running is scheduled for November 16, 2013 and promises to be bigger and better. In conjunction with the race, we will are conducting an art quilt competition & auction.

**The top 4 quilts will be presented as race prizes.**

**All others are being auctioned to benefit the Alzheimer’s Association and selected charities.**

Prizes will be awarded in several categories, to include: Most Creative, Best Technique, Most Inspirational, Judges Choice & Most Money Raised During Auction.

for more info about the race please visit www.leoruntoremember.org

Hey! I recognize another one of those quilts! Big Grin The very last one (Green & Black Stars)...I made that in an ugly challenge hosted by MSC, here on the MB (I miss her Frown) back 2007.

We sent in a half yard of ugly fabric & got back someone else's ugly. We made the quilt top & then it was returned to the donater of the fabric. If I recall correctly, I got Quiltaholic's ugly fabric (the black print in the star points & border).

How cool! I can't believe it was an 'ugly' challenge, it's so bold & trendy! Thank you for letting me know, now I can put a name on it. I've been asked about it several times these last two days, it has gotten lots of compliments.

I'm glad people like it! I just pieced it. I'm assuming Quiltaholic did the quilting...

Thanks Kay-Lin! It's a smaller version of a quilt by Cynthia Tomascewski, called Calypso. I stayed pretty true to her color choices, I just shrunk it some!

Yes, I quilted it and used it in my studio on the back of a client chair for a long time.. Like 2 years.. When Tory asked for donations I gave her some of the things I had a while to make room for new ones. I had a lot of compliments on the quilt when clients came in the studio.

So far we've had bids on four, YAY!!

We had a 'sit&sew' at the museum yesterday but there wasn't a lot of visitors (zero visitors to be exact, lol). But on the bright side, the curator was able to get some errands run while we 'manned' the door, lol.

Did I mention all the money goes to charity? There are no paid employees, just volunteers.

Would it be weird if I bid on my own quilt? It was so different from what I normally do- much brighter & all batiks- but I really like it! Smile I think I want it back Red Face

Not weird at all, u won't be the only person bidding on their own, lol. Besides, it's for a good cause. But if u r talking about Hawaiian punch it might cost u, a nurse at the physical therapy place keeps telling me she wants it, lol.

Got it! Smile Thanks a bunch. To me, it really looks like our national symbol, the Koru (fern)where the fronds are curled in a spiral. Maybe next year it will inspire me to send in one for your event Smile

Thanks for helping out! We raised 883.55 with the quilts! We are still waiting on a couple of sponsor checks before they'll tell me the grand total but it's going to be over 18,000!

I received my quilts made by Jackie and Thearica! Very cute!


my philosophy: there are no real mistakes in quilting, just design opportunities!!
