18 More Quilts for Veterans

18 more quilts made for veterans are ready to be delivered!

Notice the quilt draped behind the 2 stacks of quilts. Isn't it a beauty? Betsy pieced it from her extensive collection of reproduction fabrics leftover from some of her recent projects. In this 45" x 57" quilt 3" hour-glass blocks are framed by a wider blue (Moda Union Blues). Machine quilted by Vicki in a meandering leaf design. Having said all that, at our March meeting we decided to raffle this quilt within our membership, with the money ear-marked for future batting and backing fabric for our on-going charity quilts. The size is perfect for a baby, toddler, sofa throw, or a wall hanging.
Here's a close-up:
Carolyn offered to bring tickets to the next meeting (the kind where you keep half of the ticket and hope the winning ticket matches your number). Tickets will be available at our monthly meetings and we will draw the winning ticket at our July pot-luck dinner.
