Each year the Guild creates a quilt to be raffled. A committee is formed to choose a design, select the fabric, and assemble a Queen/King size quilt. The quilt is usually completed in time for the Visions show which is held in early March of the following year. Members often contribute by assembling blocks.
Raffle tickets are on sale throughout the year and the winner is announced at the Fall Quilt Show or the annual Pot Luck Dinner.
Proceeds from the raffle quilt are used to support Guild education activities, programs and exhibits.
"Stairway to the Mountains"
This is a queen size quilt (84" x 84") based on Cheryl A. Adam’s pattern called Jacab's Ladder, from her book “Off Center Patchwork”.
The quilt has been appraised by Dawn Hunt to be valued at $700.00.
Congratulations to Kerrie Bialas of Airdrie, Alberta, our 2016 winner.
The 2014 Raffle Quilt was created using the pattern “House Blend” designed by Joanie Morrow of “The Stitchery” quilt shop located near Olds, Alberta.
