Celestial Dreams - Laurel Burch / ALS Quilt

Posted by k8orlando (My Page) on

I've finished the quilt I'm donating to our local ALS Association for a raffle. I used the panels from Laurel Burch's Celestial Dreams and several of the coordinating fabrics, with a pretty batik for the backing. The quilt design is mine. Orlando's longarm wizard, Mary Beth, did the quilting for me. The quilt is intended for either a wallhanging or a lap quilt, even a wheelchair lap quilt - it's 40"x40". We start the raffle on Monday at an ALS benefit restaurant event, then we'll show it Friday at a fundraising walk and throughout the spring at other events. We're planning to do the drawing on July 4th. Wish us luck!

Thank you for your comments! My friend's ALS support and fundraising group is called The Sunshine Walkers, so the Burch panels and the sunburst mariners compass seemed to fit.

Kate, you must be so pleased with the results. You chose the perfect colors to coordinate with the panels. And even the fabrics are celestial. I love the striped sashing. I think it's a wonderful quilt, and I hope you get great participation in the raffle.

It's beautiful in all respects. The pattern, the fabric and the quilting. It has a happy, dreamlike aura about it and that's perfect.

One doesn't hear about ALS often, but I just found out a past work-mate and friend, with whom I'd lost contact, recently passed away from this condtion and I was very shaken. She was at the prime of her life. I hope your group raises lots of money and awareness, and Godspeed a cure.

She really did a great job, the quilting compliments the quilt perfectly.

You are an awesome quilt designer, Kate!
Your "Orlando longarm wizard" is also extremely gifted.
You have created a lovely donation for a worthy cause.

Absolutely gorgeous, Kate! Don't think I've ever seen any Laurel Burch locally but I love anything with sun, moon, stars. Perfect design setting for this panel and the quilting is magic!

Hope lots of $$$$ are made to help fight this devastating disease. Thank you for your beautiful contribution.
