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.
Each block represents a Civil War era song. Civil War Melodies quilt designed by Dolores Smith & Sarah Maxwell,
