Presenting our 2024 Raffle Quilt...
This beautiful quilt is a perfect example of a traditional pattern with a modern twist! Pattern designer Laura Flynn interspersed swirling snails trail blocks with elements from the storm at sea pattern to create a quilt full of movement. This quilt was made by one of our supporting groups, Shenandoah Piecemakers. They chose a Mod Plaid fabric which worked so well with the quilt pattern. By adding a few borders, this quilt is 93" x 102", large enough for a queen sized bed. Julie Belin of Blue Oaks Quilting used Ripples as the complementary quilting design.
Tickets are available now via our ticket sponors: the Scrappy Apple Quilts and More in Winchester and WebFabrics in Purcellville. Additionaly, tickets can be purchased from our friendly committee members, at area fairs or shows during the coming year, and at our show April 12-14, 2024.

"This quilt combines so many things that I love about quilting. It thrills me to find the perfect fabric for a project and these Tilda fabrics "hit the spot." I think my endorphins kick in when I applique and hand quilt. It's therapeutic to listen to a good book while working with my hands to create something that can be appreciated and used by my family. It makes me grateful."
