The Providence quilt
top of the quilt signed in Providence

The entire month of July will be a quilt fundraiser for Darcy Burner, candidate for Congress, WA-01.  There will be a drawing for the quilt signed in Providence at NN12 the first week in August.  Everyone can get one chance per day, each and every day in July by EITHER donating $10 or more to Darcy Burner's campaign through this Act Blue page OR by writing a 50-word-or-less essay on this topic: How can we bend the arc of history more towards justice for all?.  If we deem your essay to be on topic, it will count for a chance.  Send essays to winglionquilts AT gmail DOT com with "Darcy Burner" in the subject line.  To recap, earn an equal chance once a day every day in July by either donating or sending a short essay (one or the other).  That means everyone can have as many as thirty-one equal chances in this drawing.  The first week in August, I will find a neighborhood child to do the drawing and someone will become the new owner of the quilt.

Quilt stats:  It will be about 66" square, sleeved for hanging.  The fabric is cotton, the batting a fine wool.  I am quilting it by hand and am more than a quarter done.  It will be finished by the end of July.

More Tagging tips:

A tag is a way to search for this diary. If someone is searching for "Barack Obama," is this a diary they'd be trying to find?

Use a person's full name, without any title. Senator Obama may become President Obama, and Michelle Obama might run for office.

If your diary covers an election or elected official, use election tags, which are generally the state abbreviation followed by the office. CA-01 is the first district House seat. CA-Sen covers both senate races. NY-GOV covers the New York governor's race.

Tags do not compound: that is, "education reform" is a completely different tag from "education". A tag like "reform" alone is probably not meaningful.

Consider if one or more of these tags fits your diary: Civil Rights, Community, Congress, Culture, Economy, Education, Elections, Energy, Environment, Health Care, International, Labor, Law, Media, Meta, National Security, Science, Transportation, or White House. If your diary is specific to a state, consider adding the state (California, Texas, etc). Keep in mind, though, that there are many wonderful and important diaries that don't fit in any of these tags. Don't worry if yours doesn't.
