2017 Raffle Quilt: Tree of Life

Tree of Life raffle quiltThis raffle quilt was completed in February 2017. The Tree of Life quilt was pieced by guild members with Sheila adding the appliqué border and Ann making the label for the back. The queen sized quilt was quilted by Gina Boone. Check out this index of included block names.

After a long year of attending numerous quilt shows, various local festivals and town events to display and sell tickets for our 2017 Tree of Life raffle quilt, we took the quilt for its final showing at the 87th annual Uncle Eli’s Quilting Party on April 5, 2018. Ticket sales were brisk all morning right up until the actual drawing at 11:30.

When the winning name of Doris Banner was announced, there was a cry from behind the announcer saying, “That’s my mama!” and BCQG member Terri-Lynne jumped up to claim the quilt for her mother.
