This is my annual donation quilt – the Y-Flyer Nationals quilt. My husband, Kevin, and I have sailed Y-Flyers for over 30 years. Every year the nationals regatta is held at a local sailing club. Hosting the nationals is expensive and this is my way of giving back. I make a quilt and tickets are sold, the money raised goes toward the club hosting the nationals to help offset the cost. This year we raised $325. The quilt was made from prior years nationals and internationals t-shirts (with a few traditional quilt blocks thrown in). The winning ticket was drawn at the Beers Memorial Regatta in Atlanta, GA, with Buz Benzur as the winner.
