Ocean in Motion – 2018 Raffle Quilt
This one-of-a-kind wall hanging is 53″ x 64″ and is an artistic combination of needle-turn appliqué and pieced blocks. Professionally quilted by Lisa Taylor and embellished with sparkling crystals, it is a stunning piece that captures the beauty and power of the ocean. Raffle tickets are on sale now ($1 each or 6 for $5) until the drawing at the annual Quilt Show at the Newport Recreation Center on August 4th. Tickets can be purchased from guild members or by contacting firstname.lastname@example.org. WON BY SHIRLEY BOLLES OF SPRINGFIELD.
Ruth Hutmacher and Nan Scott met Shirley Bolles of Springfield at Family Fabrics in Waldport to award the raffle quilt to its new owner. The winning ticket was purchased on Friday at the show and was drawn on Saturday from among 8,602 tickets.
Shirley is a member of the Emerald Valley Quilt Guild and is a frequent visitor to the central Oregon coast. We met her with her two grandchildren all ready to have fun on the beach.
Raffle Quilt 2019
The 2019 raffle quilt was approved by the membership to include both our ship and lighthouse panels with radiating blocks connecting them. The raffle quilt is in the design stage and we are still looking for a few Quilters to help us with the planning.
We will have a short planning meeting sometime during the retreat and one later in February. Then the quilt production will begin in earnest to hopefully finish before the 2018 Quilt Show.
Please contact Jane to be included in the beginning design.
Jane Szabo and Cindy McEntee
