    This is a Double Wrench quilt that my guild made as our raffle this year.

    A guild member has the original antique quilt (the red) and we copied it for our raffle this year. We made it with blue fabric, hoping we would sell a lot of tickets. And boy, people love it, and we have sold a ton of tickets!

    No two blocks are exactly alike. There are more than 80 fabrics in it. And the good old Double Wrench pattern looks new and different, set on point, with every other block framed with either blue or cream triangles. It was fun and easy to sew.

    Oh yeah, I quilted it on the longarm, put a gazillion 5inch Baptist fans on it, wanted to keep that old-timey reproduction look, but didn't have time to quilt it by hand.

    That is a great quilt. I tend to love the older blocks that were used "back in the old days" if you will. You ladies did a a marvelous job on this and I bet you sell lots of raffle tickets! I also seen the smaller quilt and it is great too.
