Kevin Burgey Benefit Quilt

Our friend, Kevin was injured in a motorcycle accident on May 3rd. The back tire on his bike blew out while he was riding down the highway somewhere near La Crosse.  He was taken by Flight for Life to the nearest trauma center where he was in dire condition. Of course the medical bills are mounting and his family decided to throw a fundraiser party to help alleviate some of that.

I was approached by a close friend of Kevin's to help out with a quilt to auction at the fundraiser. Naturally, I made a Harley t-shirt quilt for the auction. I was happy to help.


The quilt measured 70' x 100" - a good size for a nice event.

I quilted it with a simple meander and used wool batting for a nice drapey feel.

After the event was over I got a nice text thanking me for my contribution along with this photo.  The family on the left won the quilt with a winning bid of $350 and the two people on the right are Kevin's kids. The winning bidders donated the quilt to Kevin as a keepsake of the event. What a wonderful family!

By the way, Kevin is doing great. He was released from the hospital two days before the event so he got to attend for a little while. What great news.
