Constructed after a series of happy chances in 2019, the Guild's 2021 raffle quilt is a generous gift from Cheryl Whistler Garrison.  It all started at a quilt show where Cheryl bought several yards of a border print from Jason Yenter's 'Unusual Gardens' line for In the Beginning fabrics.  At the same time, Cheryl picked up a bundle of fat quarters from Designs by JB.  When Cheryl got home, she happened to stash her new purchases on a shelf next to a bunch of appliqued blocks she had done in a class with Mary Sorenson 'years ago'.  "Then it struck me," she describes her epiphany.  "It all looked great together?"  She used the "Log Cabin in the Garden" pattern Jason designed but substituted her applique blocks instead of his printed panels.

The exquisite quilting was done by Teresa Silva. [Had our 2020 show not been cancelled, she would have been our quest artist.]  The result is the "Serendipity" quilt which measures 69" X 86".
