Raf2016.JPG.jpg2016 RAFFLE QUILT                                                      
This is Judy Niemeyer design, Glacier Star.
This quilt was made by S&B Quilters and quilted by Gale Smith. Quilt size is a queen.
Thank You to Bonnie Noland & all the Guild members who helped make this beautiful quilt.

Each year our Guild selects a quilt design for the next year's raffle quilt. Guild members complete blocks for the quilt. Tickets are $1.00 each. The winner will be drawn at our December meeting that is the first Saturday which is our Christmas Party. Monies raised from the raffle ticket sales benefit our Guild's continuing Quilting education program for our Guild members.

***Congratulations to the 2015 Raffle Quilt winner - Trudy Wason, one of our very own S&B Quilters' Guild member.***
