Now, this is going to be an interesting blog and it might even be a lucky one for one of you readers! This blog is about a quilt that just came off my longarm and is for my guild’s raffle. The quilt will be raffled on April 21, 2018, and you can get in on it!
You MUST be a resident of the continental United States, however.
First, let me show you the quilt, which measures approximately 93”x93”:
I promise it’ll be bound by the time you win it 🙂
Tickets can be purchased for the price of $1 each or 6 for $5. Not bad! You can buy as many as you like by emailing the Miamisburg Quilt Guild at:
Let them know that you are interested in buying tickets and they’ll help you do just that.
I freemotion longarmed this and added a little rulerwork on my Innova. Three colors of Glide thread were used and the batting in this quilt is Quilters Dream Poly Puff.
This quilt was pieced with one common fabric for the white areas and a myriad of aquas, greens, blues and purples. There are too many different fabrics to count and its a lot of fun to search through all the piecing to find your favorite one. I know…I did just that while quilting this!
Onto more pictures of this beautiful quilt the guild pieced.
I worked a series of feathers around the very center block and then wrapped feathers around each series of colored blocks. It gave some very nice movement to the quilt. Here’s a closer look:
The border was done with a freemotion feather that met in the middle of each side and originated from the corner with a nice feather spray that uniquely “borrowed” a block of the quilt body:
And, the guild had so many blocks that they used some to create a beautiful backing:
So, if you like what you see and you’d like to support their efforts, don’t forget to buy some tickets by emailing MiamisburgQuiltShow@woh.rr.com today! Or, tomorrow! Just do it before you forget. The guild raises money through the sale of these tickets to help local charity organizations, so you are really helping them to help others.
