We have a house at the beach (Oregon) and I was able to spend most of the past week there with my husband (he is recuperating from elbow surgery).
We went to the local library and when I walked in I was surprised to see a quilt that I had made and donated to a local charity hanging on the wall. The librarian asked me to sign the label that was put on the back - so my name and the name of my longarm friend now grace the back of this quilt.
I have made a raffle quilt!!!
The funny part of the whole thing is that it is made up mostly of scraps and fabric I had on hand. It was beautifully quilted by a longarm friend of mine.
I posted a picture on my Facebook page and a highschool girlfriend in Arizona said she wanted to win it - so off to the library I went to purchase tickets to win a quilt that I donated to them so if I win I can send it along to her. The volunteer at the library said she would wish me luck - except her name was in the box and she wanted it - lol.
I hope the pictures show up - I have never done this before ... wish me luck!
