2019 Raffle Quilt – Heading Home
A big thank you to all that helped make this a success. Julia Bailey did the beautiful needle turned appliqué, Jennifer Reinhart did the wonderful quilting, Karen Donobedian did another amazing job with her binding and Dolores Thomas added the WOW factor with a great job on the crystals. Thank you to all the block piercers and Jean Amundson for the name. Cindy McEntee also helped with the color designing. It takes a village or a terrific Guild to make this quilt come together. ——Jane Szabo
