2017 Raffle Quilt Sew Together
Some images from our progress at the raffle quilt sew together on 9/27/16
A HUGE thank you to everyone who came out to sew and help out! These are just some photos of the over 40 participants. The top is put together, the piano key border is together and will be applied this week. This is going to be a WONDERFULLY colorful raffle quilt!
Titled ‘Delectable Mountains’, this is our raffle quilt for 2016. It is a Bonnie Hunter inspired design, very colorful in batiks and made by many, many members who contributed the blocks, backing, quilting and time to put it together! It will be drawn on December 13th at our Christmas Luncheon. This is our major fund raiser for the year that allows us to purchase materials for our charity sews, bring in teachers, etc.
Members please get your tickets to sell from Debbie Manes at the meetings. Tickets are $1 each or 6 for $5.
