2023 Raffle Quilt

The guild is already planning their 2023 raffle quilt.  The pattern is called Sew Many Scraps, a quilt-along from American Patchwork & Quilting, April 2019.  It requires a bazillion 1.5" strips.

A 'bazillian' strips were donated by guild members, the Community Service tribe and the Bee at White Bluffs have completed the top.  Cyndy Underwood donated the backing, and Ginny Coffman donated the batting.  The quilt has been delivered to Trista Self for quilting.  Geneva Carroll has volunteered to sew on the binding.  We hope to reveal the completed quilt at the May 9th membership meetings.

We Have a Winner!

The beautiful 2022 raffle quilt was won by Karen Michaels, a guild member.  Karen is shown with her new quilt and also with Cheryl Garrison, the guild member who created this fabulous quilt.

CONGRATULATIONS TO KAREN!

2021 Raffle Quilt - Serendipity

Constructed after a series of happy chances in 2019, the Guild's 2022 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.  The result is the "Serendipity" quilt which measures 69" X 86".
