2016 Light the night
raffle quilt

(THIS RAFFLE has ended)

Fred went to Heaven on April 16th, 2017.  He had a blood cancer called Multiple Myeloma. No one knows where it originates. No one has a cure. By the grace of God, his cancer was found in 2004 after breaking a hip. Tests confirmed his diagnosis and we began treatment. Fred never achieved remission, so we continued to rely on God’s grace to make new treatments available. He fought it for nearly 13 years.

We've received great support from The Leukemia and Lymphoma Society. They are a helpful resource to anyone with blood cancer, so we are happy to give back. Team Fred has been participating every year in Light The Night Walks since 2005.


We’re happy to once again offer a custom quilt as an extra incentive for one of our donors to the 2016 Light The Night Walk. This 77" x 77" lap quilt was pieced and quilted by myself, Michelle Schmersahl. The quilt pattern is "6th Grade Quilt" from the Precut Primer by Me and My Sister Designs. The fabrics in this quilt are Little Gatherings and Primitive Muslin by Lisa Bongean of Primitive Gatherings for Moda. The curved crosshatch freehand quilting was created using Linda Hrcka's QP Curved Template. Aurifil cotton Mako thread was used exclusively in the construction and quilting. Earn one raffle entry for each $20 you donate on my page. A donation of $100 earns five chances in the raffle drawing.

(You must donate on this fundraising page to be entered in the drawing, not the Team Fred page.) 

The winning name will be drawn at the Light The Night Walk on November 5th, 2016. You need not be present to win. We will ship for free anywhere in the continental USA. Anonymous donations are welcome, but please DO NOT donate ANONYMOUSLY if you want to enter this drawing. Raffle entry deadline is November 4th, 2016.

Please join Team Fred at the Greater Phoenix Walk
