Under Construction

The Raffle Quilt for our 33rd Annual Quilt Show has been named "Rosebirds." The quilt measures approximately 96" X 96". It is hand-appliquéd, machine-pieced and hand-quilted. The 100% cotton quilt features roses with two birds in the center. The roses are accented with oil-based pastels heat set on the pink flowers.

The Raffle Quilt was designed by Helene Knott. She also designed "Evening Song," the NWQ 1995 Raffle Quilt. "Evening Song" was featured on the cover of Quilters Newsletter magazine and was shown at the International Quilt Festival in Houston, Texas.
