TO ALL MY BROTHERS AND SISTERS. I HAVE BEEN WORKING ON THIS PROJECT FOR OVER 3 YEARS NOW. ITS TIME WE ALL GET TOGETHER AND HELP RAISE SOME MONEY FOR THE KIDS TO HELP THEM BUILD THE SKATEPARK. WE ALREADY HAVE AN ACRE OF LAND THAT THE CITY DONATED, NOW ALL WE NEED IS MORE FUNDS TO MAKE THIS HAPPEN. LETS GET THEM OFF THE STREETS AND PUT THEM WHERE ITS SAFE TO PURSUE WHAT THEY LOVE TO DO. THIS EVENT IS SPONSORED BY THE ROAD MAGGOTS, AND PUT ON BY ME AS ONE OF THE SKATEPARK BOARD MEMBERS, ANY DONATIONS WOULD BE MUCH APPRECIATED.
He has been getting A LOT of donations from businesses around the Willamette Valley, SO MANY generous people, it has been amazing!!!
There have also been many who have come forward to volunteer and help and many young people are ready to help make this happen, So very cool!!!!
Drew asked me to make a quilt for the raffle. Here is where is stands at the moment. I have a little less than 3 weeks to get this finished!!!
You can see a few blanks there, no worries, there will be other riding elements added. Like, a skateboard, maybe a skater, maybe the front end of a Harley Davidson Motorcycle??? Just to name a few.
My take on the quilt is: I want it to appeal to many people, including the men and women who ride Harley Davidson's and other bikes. AND, many of started riding bicycles and skateboards before we hopped on a Harley! I had a little red skateboard with metal wheels!! It was fun, but I think I liked me roller skates and my sting ray best!!
I started the design process when I found the fabric on Ebay!!
|Perfect for a very cool skater quilt!!|
|The first design on the left was while my husband and I were out to breakfast, this is my grocery list!! When I got home, I worked on the middle design and the one on the right is the one I am actually using now.|
|This will be in the top right corner of the quilt and there will be a skateboard instead of a twig and arrows!!|
I will post photos when completed!!! Wish us luck with the fund raiser, we need a lot of money to get it built!!!
Take Care, thanks for the visit, Happy Quilting, and keep those scissors sharp!!! Martha
