Her special delivery contained the quilt photographed below titled "Dino Boy Quilt." Melissa was going to sell this quilt on her own online shop called "Dainty Jane Quilts," but decided she wanted to help raise money for ALS Research and asked if we would place this quilt on the Hopes & Dreams Storenvy shop instead. She wrote, "I know it is only a cot quilt, do you think you would be able to auction if off to help raise money for ALS Research?"
Melissa, like Quilters Dream Batting owner Kathy Thompson and many other family members of loved ones living with ALS, is on a mission to raise awareness and help fund research for a cure after watching her Mother suffer with this 100-year old devastating disease.
Melissa shared with us that she is an avid quilter and was lucky to have inherited some of her quilting skills from her 'mum.' Unfortunately, Melissa's Mum passed away in July of this year. Not only did she share her little dynamo quilt with Hopes & Dreams, she shared the mission of Hopes & Dreams with one of Australia's Quilt Magazines.
