2023 quilt show raffle quilt

Quilt Show Committee

This is the quilt pattern for the 2023 Raffle Quilt. We will not have any more Show committee meetings until January.

2023 Raffle Quilt Sew-In
A Sew-In day was scheduled for Saturday, October 22, from 9:00an to 3:00pm to cut, sew, and assemble the 2023 Raffle Quilt.

We made wonderful progress on the quilt with Marcia’s Accuquilt Go cutting accurate pieces for us. We sewed, we ripped, we sewed, we laughed. It was a great day.

Kind Regards.
Jackie Fisher/Alicia Gilewski
