This year, an enthusiastic group from the Greater Albuquerque, New Mexico area contributed the most: 90 squares. Not only that, but they also found a donor who would donate $1,000 to the BAABC cause, if Jeanette Shanigan used their 90 turtle squares to create a unique quilt especially for them; that's why there are only five quilts for the Bead and Button auction. Fire Mountain Gems and Beads has purchased a number of quilts in past auctions, therefore, one of their tote bags was embellished with the "extra squares." To date, Jeanette Shanigan and her many contributors have raised around $14,650 for Bead Artists Against Breast Cancer.
"Remember the turtle; persistence, not speed, counts; a cure for breast cancer will be found."
