2014 Raffle Quilt

2014 Raffle Quilt

 

The pattern ‘Common Bride’  is by Laundry Basket Quilts and was made by members of the guild.  Piecing was completed by Sandy Bolin-Towns, Tamara Watts-McPhail and Connie Lovelady.  Evonn Walling and Gloria House shared their invisible needle turn applique skills and Vicki Swensen completed the machine quilting that features trapunto and exquisite quilting designs.  The finishing touch was provided by Jeri Mace with beautiful binding.  The result is a stunning quilt measuring 80 inches square which is large enough for a queen size bed.

 

Raffle quilt tickets are 1 for $1 or 6 for $5 and can be purchased from any AAQG guild member, Connie at 515-419-8088 or aclovelady@gmail.com or at the Petals and Patchwork Quilt Show:  July 11 – 12, 2014.
