Guild Quilt

I'm not usually one to "pedal" things to my blogger friends, and I pray that no one is offended. But I think this is just an absolutely lovely quilt, and want to offer the opportunity for any of you to win it. I do want to tell you that the moneys generated from the sale of raffle tickets for this quilt go primarily to our programs, but we do support several great benevolence ministries: Monetary Support of the local Pregnancy Care Center, Wee Care Quilts (baby/child quilts distributed at the local hospital for needy/ill children), and CPS Bags (cloth bags the size of pillow cases that are used to carry a child's belongings if they are removed from an unhealthy or dangerous home environment).


94" X 102"

The pattern is from "The Tales of the First Ladies" by Eleanor Burns.

The piecing and appliqueing was done by several guild members. Long arm quilted by Doris Rice (guild member) 

Ticket Prices:

$1 per ticket
6 tickets for $5

If you buy 6 Tickets, I will add another - so will will get 7 chances for $5.

If you are interested, please email (enabled on my profile) me with your address and phone number. I will snail mail the tickets with a SAS envelope so you can return the payment. The drawing will be on Saturday April  26, 2014. 

Be Blessed and...

I'm emailing my info to you, Doniene. Our guild also does an opportunity quilt raffle and its an excellent method to augment our program dept., we donate to battered women's shelter, teen pregnancy shelter and to veteran groups.

Will it be mailed if someone not local wins it?

I'd love some tickets too - it is a beautiful quilt - and I think that April gives me enough time to get some US$$ in the post to you. You could hold the tickets at your house and if I happened to win, we'd just have to work out what to do!!!!

The guild quilt is just spectacular!! And I love your midwinter blues. It looks great! The traveling stash box is GREAT! I tried one with knitting one time but it was kind of pitiful when it got to me so I never tried one again. I may have to get in on one for quilting. Looks like everyone has been very generous and it makes the whole process so much more enjoyable for everyone. Have a great evening!!!
