This beauty is 94" x 94" with cheerful colors. The quilt will be raffled off at our end-of-the-year quilt year meeting: Tuesday, June 5, 2018.

Our 2016-17 quilt was raffled off at the June 6, 2017 meeting. The raffle quilt “Sticks and Stones" was designed by Edyta Star of Laundry Basket Quilts. It is made with a line of Moda Fabrics that Edyta designed. The quilt is 61" x 61" square. The quilt was pieced and quilted by guild member Pat Surra. The winner of the 2016–2017 raffle quilt is Cathy Arvin, Diana McGlocklin’s step-daughter. Diana is a member of the guild.
Becky Wilson, our raffle chair for the past two years, reports: "I have enjoyed meeting many new and current members the last two years while I handled the raffle tickets. Thanks to all who participated, especially those who invested time making the quilts. The raffle quilt is an important source of funds that helps the guild bring in the wonderful variety of speakers we are all able to enjoy at our meetings. Please support the raffle quilt project in the coming year by working with our new co-chairs to sell as many raffle tickets as possible!"
