Raffle Quilt 2016
"There's No Place Like Home"

Raffle Quilt 2016

The quilt coordinators were Mary Ann Schwab, Nancy Tubbs and Joy Nichols. Mary Ann Schwab was inspired by stories about her grandparents during the Great Depression in naming the 2016 raffle quilt, "There's No Place Like Home". Fabric was cut; kits were made and distributed to the guild members to sew. Joy Nichols designed the appliquéd border and sewed the binding. Debbie Scroggy, All Quilted, did the machine quilting. The 2016 Raffle Quilt measures 90" x 90". The drawing will be at the Northwest Quilters" 2016 Quilt Show on May 7, 2016 at 4 pm.
