First Look at our Raffle Quilts
Our raffle quilts have been quilted, we will soon have our tickets ready for sale. Members at our February gathering were shown the finished products - we have a first and second prize quilt this year. Many thanks to those members who came along to our very special sit and sew last year to get a great head start on these quilts. A special thanks to those of you who completed the quilts ready for Rhonda to Quilt. And once again a big thankyou to our resident longarm quilter Rhonda Coates for the wonderful work you did on the quilting. Here is a first look at the result (improved photos to follow shortly)
