Right on both counts Millie.
Hey Mom, this is the quilt Auntie Karate made!
Yes Millie, she makes terrific quilts!
So OK, I guess it's pretty obvious, you and Auntie Karate are gonna make a bean sized quilt to raffle to benefit the Meezers, right?
You've got it in one, Millie.
How many Gizzy Quilts big are these?
Between 11 and 12 Gizzy Quilts, Millie.
Omigoodness, those are E-NORMOUS!
Well, not quite...
WAIT A MINUTE! Whaddya mean, 'not quite?' Are you telling me that the quilt you are gonna raffle for the Meezers is gonna be BIGGER than either one of these?
Well, bean beds come in different sizes. Mine is a "Double" but there are bigger sizes, like a Queen and a King.
A Queen and a King?
Yes, Millie. But see how the quilt Auntie made hangs down over the sides? She wants her quilts to be big enough to cover up the beans when they are in the bed.
So the quilt is big enough to cover a Queen and a King? Yeah, right! A-n-y-w-a-y-s... tell me more about this raffle. How much is a Raffle Ticket for this Gizzy-normous Quilt gonna cost?
The raffle tickets will cost $10.00 each, Millie.
When will the raffle tickets go on sale?
They will go on sale on Meezer Sunday, February 24, 2008 and be on sale for a week.
When will the winner be announced?
The winner will be announced the following Sunday, March 2.
But Mom, just how big is this quilt gonna be, anyway?
That will be announced on Sunday.
Jeez Louise, Mom, you don't give up, do you?
