Quilt Raffle

Well, here it is. This is the Gold Beach Quilt guild Raffle Quilt. We have been in the planning and sewing for the last 10 months or so. I was part of the design committee which consisted of 6 members. The quilt itself was worked on by 20 members of the guild who did the piecing and the hand applique. One of our members, Shelley Knapp who is a professional quilter did the quilting.

I am very happy with the completed quilt. It is a Queen size, 82" x 106". It is currently hanging in a local bank. We will be holding the drawing next year at our local Quilt Show, on September 16, 2012.

I have tickets available if any of you are interested. The tickets are a dollar each or 6 for $5.00. You don't have to be present to win. So if you are interested drop me an email or leave a comment and I will contact you.

The money we raise will go to our educational programs, and purchasing batting and flannel for our Quilts for Comfort.
We provide a flannel quilt to every newborn in the county.
We provide quilts to the County's American Red Cross, providing quilts
to families in need.
We provide lap quilts to people receiving hospice care in Curry County.

Thanks for allowing me to post an advertisement. :-) I hope all of you have a wonderful week.
