|Charity Quilt Raffle 2019
Our new quilt, made by the Draycott ladies, is a double bed quilt, measuring approximately 92 inches. The colour palette is a beautiful range of neutrals – dark and medium greyish browns and ivory with splashes of duck egg blue.
The finer details: The quilt is made up of 86 individually made 6″, 8″ and 12″ blocks. These are interspersed with 49 8-pointed stars, 24 snowballs and 120 flying geese, all bordered by another 176 flying geese. Mainly it was machine pieced, with just a little hand applique here and there. It was quilted by Yvonne Browne at Midsomer Quilting and we are very grateful for their support.
Proceeds from the raffle of this quilt will go to Guide Dogs for the Blind
