Quilts for Kye

Philippians 4: 14-20

I've been given the ability to create with my hands....making quilts is my passion.
Last year I made A LOT of quilts and wall- hangings.  
I would love to do something with them that would bless and benefit someone else...
like this little guy right here....Mr. Kye Carrillo, 22 months old.
 Kye and Keelee Carrillo were born on April 25, 2014. However, Kye was born with a congenital heart defect which was successfully repaired at 3 months old with open heart surgery ....

Last year right after Thanksgiving, Kye was diagnosed with liver cancer and needs a liver transplant. 
 The family is from Abilene, Texas and Kye and his Mommy have been at the hospital/Ronald McDonald House in Dallas since then, over 190 miles away from Dad and the 3 other children.
It was put on my heart to sell some of my big quilts and art quilts to help this family out.
 100% of every sale will go to Kye, You pay the shipping.

Feathered Heart
I made this art collage quilt by cutting out more than 25 different flowers from various fabrics and precisely placing them to create this one of a kind art wall hanging. It features an echoed rain drop quilted motif with some blingy thread for fun. 
It has a sleeve on the back for easy hanging.

Hey Vicki, somehow you dissapeared from my google friends.
I happened to see you on Quilting Queens side bar this morning. So I'm back. thats a good thing, right?
I'm going to keep Kye in prayer until I hear differently.
I'm also pray for your quilts to sell and more people like you will step forward for this family. I'm praying for God to show me what else I might be able to do for this family, if I had the finances I would gladly give it.
May God bless and use Kye to further his Kingdon.
