2016 Raffle Quilt....




Each year we gather together to create a raffle quilt

to donate to the

Women's Cancer Coalition

This is for 2016




The Jane Sassaman fabrics were donated to HVQ

by the sweet and thoughtful Nancy Bryant.






We are using all of the fabrics left over from the top...

to create some "back art"






There are 6 HVQ members in the Palace today...






Once the design work was done...

it was time to stitch it all together






There was plenty to keep everyone busy...






Kathi is our chief designer...


















I decided to add one more border treatment 

to the quilt top...







The Quilt Back is coming along nicely...






We barely have enough left over fabrics...

























Many Hands.....Make Light Work













I added 2 small strips of striped fabric to the top and left side

70 x 70 inches













The Quilt Top and Quilt Back are ready to baste...

more to come.
