|2015 RAFFLE QUILT
This is our S&B Quilter, Vicki Jones' design, using Kaffe Fassett fabrics.
This quilt was made by S&B Quilters. It was quilted by Gale Smith.
Size is aproximately 88x88.
Thank You to Vicki & 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 Holiday Party. Monies raised from the raffle ticket sales benefit our Guild's continuing Quilting education program for our Guild members.
***Congratulations to the 2014 Raffle Quilt winner - Denise Steiskal from Breckenridge, CO.***
|Our Mission is to promote quilting and to expand and enhance our knowledge and enjoyment of quilting and quilting techniques in an atmosphere of sharing fellowship.
