    Quilt Group Raffle quilt

    My Senior Quilt group made this quilt to raise money for local library. It brought in $3,500!!!
    What a thrill and a nice donation to the Library! We make one quilt a year, now onto the next one

    Thank you. It was a quilt that started out with applique dresden flowers squares and then the center was created to fit the outside border. Created as we went along. Sorry we didn't have a written pattern for it. It started off as an idea and took off from there. The majority of the quilters are in their late 70's and 80's. The group has been making a quilt a year for 20 years. I am honored to be a new younger member of the group. This is my second year with them.
