Raffle Quilt

This was the raffle quilt that was featured at the Big Brother/Big Sister luncheon on Saturday. It's gorgeous! Wish I had won it! Bummer!
The focus fabric is the black print used on the border and was given to members of Heartland Quilt Guild (I'm not a member) who participated. It was a "friendship" exchange. Each of the 12 ladies made 13 blocks. They exchanged the 12 blocks with each other and the 13th set was put together into this beautiful quilt to raffle off.
It was machine quilted by a gentleman from Prairie Patchworks in Wagner, SD. The quilting is such fun. Every block is unique.
I just know that the lucky lady whose name was drawn is going to enjoy this quilt for many years.


  1. Hi Sara,
    Thank you for attending the Quilting for Kids' Sake event and for helping sell raffle tickets on the beautiful quilt that the Heartland Quilters Guild and friends worked on. Your help is VERY much appreciated! Brenda

  2. What a great event! I'd love to hear what the winner of the raffle quilt's reaction was! Great blog, too. So fun to be able to show my sister a picture of Ruby and Louise to go along with my story. Thanks for posting it. -Ruth
