Raffle Quilt










Every other year my guild puts on a quilt show. I have to say it is a really nice show. We hang from 250 to 350 quilts. We also have many nice vendors, a market place and raffles. For the raffle

we always have a raffle quilt. The quilts have varied greatly from year to year. Our next show is in Nov. of next year, so preparations have begun. A group of quilters from our gui

ld who meet weekly to hand quilt volunteered to make the raffle quilt this time. Yesterday they brought the top by to show me. It is lovely! They used my book, making each block twice so it would be a queen size. Their work is fantastic and it is so fun to see what someone else has made from my patterns. The quilt will be hand quilted by volunteers.




Hmm...Maybe I could be the winner.
