A Home for the Eclipse Quilt

Desiree Brugman was the winner of our Eclipse Charity Quilt. She dropped us a line to let us know the quilt arrived safely. Her initial reaction was priceless. She said:
My daughter Maddie's reaction was, "Its huge! It's so pretty!" And all Meagan could say was, "Wow mom!" As for me, all I could do was smile and touch it. It's absolutely breath taking!

She sent us another note with a photo of her girls holding the quilt and we'd like to share that with you.
We were thrilled with the quilt! You can't just call it a quilt though, its a true piece of art. The girls and I have looked at and touched each square. The work that was put into it is amazing. Of course we each have our favorite square. Mine is the imprinting, Maddie's is Rosalie's and Meagan likes the tent scene. My husband couldn't pick just one; he liked the whole quilt, but was real impressed with the ribbon that runs through it. We're going to use it as a wall hanging over our sofa. That way everyone can enjoy it. I am still amazed we won this. We can't wait to see what you girls come up with for Breaking Dawn (we're anxious to see the movie too!). Thanks so much for the quilt and your love of Twilight. I'm proud to say yes, I am one of those Twilight people, a Twilight Mom as a matter of fact!

Congratulations to Desiree and her girls, Maddie and Meagan! We would also like to thank every one who donated to Alex's Lemonade Stand Foundation. We believe it is an important cause.

I'm so glad it's going to be a wall deserves to be used as 'art'. :D

All of you did an amazing job on the quilt. Maybe my life will give me time to help with the next one!
