2012 EQ Raffle Quilts




Although various members of EQ made blocks for each quilt, one person had to sew all those blocks together. Peggy Schuld made the God's Eye top for us out of all the God's Eye blocks turned in. The quilt was then machine quilted by her husband, Del.


Darlene Demerick sewed the North Winds blocks together. The top was then passed from house to house and hand quilted by many hands.


Thank you to all those who worked on this years quilts and to Laurie Latta, Anne Dawson and Carole Knutsen for for organizing the marketing and sale of the Raffle Tickets.

Tickets are available at the Farmer's Market each Saturday until September 11 at which time the winning ticket will be drawn. Tickets are also available at Quilter's Studio above Vita's in Lopez Village.
