DreamTeam Auction 2008: Quilt Progress #3…..Ready for a New Home

DreamTeamLogoAfter much toiling and sweating and some cursing, The Mickey Mouse Dream Team Quilt has been completed.

I thought it would be fun to provide you a bit of information about the quilt.  So here is it by the numbers:

  • Number of Hours Spent Piecing and Quilting:  150
  • Number of Yards of fabric used:  30
  • Number of Yards of Thread used (approxiametly):  2200
  • Cost of labor if quilting services had been paid for:  $25/hour
  • Number of Hidden Mickeys:  ?? (That’s for the owner to find out)

It should also be noted that all cotton fabric and batting was used on this quilt.

DSC_5686As the final post about the creation of this quilt, I thought it would be fitting to provide in Enchanted Rose’s own words why she is doing this for the Auction:

I have a nephew named Collin Presley who has very special needs.  He has a very rare medical condition called trichothiodystrophy. 

Collin is a Disney fanatic to the core!  He is also a Make-A-Wish kid.  He was offered a trip to Walt Disney World, but my sister was too concerned to have him that far from his medical team, so he was granted an alternate wish.  He is at Disneyland at least once a week though and loves his experiences.

There is nothing like seeing this child, who is constantly in pain, belly laughing at the floats in the Electric Light Parade at Disney’s California Adventure or smiling when he feels the wind in his face on Dumbo.

My sister’s blog rarely has a weekly post that does not include at least one trip to Disneyland.

I am more than happy to construct this quilt that will benefit the Make-A-Wish Foundation® of America in honor of my very own Make-Wish family member.
