    I made this quilt to be raffled at my husbandís family reunion. Hope to raise money toward the next year. Not sure how to do it as I have never had any experience with raffling one. Would hate for it to go for $30.00Ö. because of the money invested and time.

    I have a lady that machine quilts all of my quilts Her quilting covered my lack of experiments. This was my first to place on point and was a challenge for me. It is a teal color but looks blue from the photo. The embroidery designs are Jacobean flowers and I used teal thread.

    that's a beautiful quilt. anybody would be lucky to win it. :P :P :P

    Decide how much you want the quilt to earn toward the reunion fund. divide it by the number of households who will be represented at the reunion. whatever the raffle ticket price comes to, remind everybody that it's for family, for fun, and for a one-of-a kind work of fabric art.

    It's very pretty!! The embroidered flowers are perfect. Sorry I've never done a raffle without selling a lot of tickets. Maybe instead, do a silent auction, putting a minimum bid.

    That is really pretty.....maybe you could put a starting bid on your quilt.....sometimes nonquilters have no clue....just cause they can go elswhere and buy a quilt at other stores for very little doesn't mean yours should go for that......Hope you get what you want out of it regardless!!......:-)

    Beautiful Quilt. Someone is going to be very lucky! In my family that wouldn't be me :roll: LOL I have only donated quilted tote bags to raffles. I just let the organization handle the raffle part so can't help there.

    Gorgeous! When we do our raffle we do: 1 ticket limit at $5.00 each.

    We manage to make enough to cover meat, paper products and drinks for the next year.

    Everyone fights over the quilt. This year will be the 5th year I made one. I never win them but I love to make them. My skills implrove each year and I can see it in the pictures. They all know I am not a professional and each quilt is made with love for our family. They love me anyway. :)

    Good luck!
