The 2018-19 raffle quilt was unveiled at our October meeting. Photos will be posted. The 2018-2019 raffle quilt chair is Tiffany Crowe.
Our 2017-18 raffle quilt "Scrappy Bear Paw" was revealed at the September 5, 2017 meeting. It was designed and pieced by Betsy Glassey and quilted by Jane Pitt. Both are guild members. This beauty is 94" x 94" with cheerful colors. The quilt was raffled off at our end-of-the-year quilt year meeting on Tuesday, June 5, 2018.
The lucky winner was Amy Stewart, who joined the guild in February 2018. She began quilting with a teacher friend in 2006, when she decided to make a baby quilt for her niece. Then she moved to San Angelo, Texas, and walked into a quilt shop no bigger than a garden shed, run by a wonderful quilter who had written several quilt books. They started a friendship and Amy learned some of the technical aspects of quilting. Now, we’re glad to have her here in Bloomington!
Remember, this raffle is a big fundraiser for the guild, enabling us to present high-quality programs and workshops.
Congratulations to our 2017-18 raffle quilt winner, Amy Stewart.

Becky Wilson, who has served as raffle chair, 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."
