    The Hickory County Quilters have made this "Opportunity Quilt" which they are selling tickets on. The tickets are $1 each or 6/$5. This is a beautiful quilt, the applique is done by hand; the rest of quilt is machine pieced and quilted. The quilt measures approximately 95 inches by 111 inches. I used Hobbs 80/20 batting.

    The proceeds are used to purchase materials for charity projects, military quilt, baby quilts, quilts for families who have lost items due to tornatoes, floods, fires, etc.

    I just love it, and that border with the applique is awesome, I will have to add applique to a border sometime soon, it just adds so much to a quilt

    I have a top waiting for me to put borders on with almost this same block pattern. I love the appliqued flowers. I was thinking it needed something...thank you for posting your picture and good luck on your charity. =)

    That is a beautiful quilt! My dad was from Hermitage, MO. He was an Owsley and went to the "Owsley School". Do you know when they will have a reunion?
