Raffle Quilt….2015



We are at it again….




Creating a Raffle Quilt to benefit

The Women's Cancer Coalition






White Swirly Background Fabric







We are working with a softer palette this year…








The fabrics were cut into random size strips

then sewed together in strip units…






Kathi is sewing the background strips






Rochelle is sewing the pastel strips…












The strip units were cut into strips







Strip Units upon design wall….







Kathi arranges the strips…














Rochelle is a senior in high school this year and is

becoming an excellent Quilter!



























More Design Work…






It was a challenge to keep track of the strips…






so we used sticky notes to keep them organized!


In 2 days we completed the quilt top.

Here it is ready to be basted…



The inspiration for this quilt came from:





The quilt will be machine quilted over the summer.

We will post the completed quilt next fall.
