PIEDMONT QUILTERS' GUILD
2017 RAFFLE QUILT
"Butterflies & Blossoms"
About our Raffle Quilt:
Our raffle quilt is “Butterflies & Blossoms”. PQG Member Joyce Mottern created the butterfly and floral blocks adapting a commercial pattern (not sure which). After she passed away in 2012 her husband gave the blocks to her friend and PQG member Ann Johnson. Ann donated the blocks to the guild to be used for our raffle quilt. The quilt was constructed by our three quilt show co-chairs Lillian Adcock, Keren Rotberg and Linda Ryan. Ann created one more block in the style of Joyce’s blocks so they could be set on-point and created the butterflies in the border. The quilt was beautifully custom quilted by another PQG member Jane Weinstein using a long-arm quilting machine.
It is bed quilt size, 84 inches square.
Tickets are $1 each or 6 for $5. The drawing will be on December 14th at our monthly guild meeting. Need not be present to win.
We will have a Silent Auction area featuring small quilts, wall hangings and other quilt related items that were made by or donated by guild members. The family of a guild member who passed away earlier this year has donated her sewing machine, quilting frame and other quilting supplies which will be available in the Silent Auction. You can bid on your favorite item or use the “Buy It Now” option to take it home with you right away.
In an effort to give back to our community we will donate 50% of the money made from our Silent Auction to the Alight Breast Cancer Center. Alight is a non-profit organization supporting local breast cancer patients and their families.
The Mission of Alight is to reach out to breast cancer patients of the Alight Breast Center at Cone Health by:
Providing educational, financial and emotional resources.
Responding to evolving individual patient needs.
Developing and strengthening partnerships which enhance our program of work.
