Tornado Relief - Donate a Quilt!

In light of the deadly tornadoes that swept through parts of Illinois on November 17, 2013, Peddler's Way Quilt Co. in Washington, Illinois will be taking donations at the store. Needed are finished quilts, with a label, so the recipient will know who to thank, pillows, pillowcases, knitted or crocheted hats, scarves and gloves. There are MANY in need of everything, and in our own way we can help with these things. Thanks for all the messages of concern and offers to help.
(Above paragraph was copied and pasted from their website).

You can contact Peddler's Way Quilt Co. with any questions you may have about this.

Also, another way to donate and help comfort tornado victims...

Lost & Found... in Illinois...

"This quilt was found on Devonshire in Washington, Illinois. Look familiar? It has been washed up and is a bit damaged from the tornado, but it is looking for its home. Please help!"

ROUND Queen, Horse-Themed, Fleece Quilt FOR SALE

This is a project from the year 2010... I was asked to make a soft, fluffy, horse-themed quilt for a queen-sized ROUND bed, so this is what I made.  The buyers backed out on me, so I've been stuck with it and have been storing it ever since (in a clean, dry plastic tub).  It cost me a total of around $250 in materials alone to make this.  It's made entirely of fleece fabrics, and has a satin gold trim around the edges.  It is double layered fleece, NO quilt batting between the layers.
Even though it's made for a round queen bed, it also fits well on a regular shaped double/full size bed, and would work on a regular shaped queen size bed.  (I have taken a picture of it on a queen bed to give the idea).
I would like to get at least $250 for it, just to try and get back the materials cost I paid out-of-pocket for, but I'm willing to consider ALL offers, because it isn't doing any good just stored away for nobody to enjoy.
It would make a unique holiday or Christmas gift for the right person!  Please contact me with any offers!  I can ship, and would be able to get a shipping quote for anyone interested.
Thanks for looking at and sharing this post!
