The raffle quilt this year is a Dresden Plate quilt in blues, with proceeds from the raffle going to Skye Cancer Care. Tickets will be on sale during the exhibition only. We’re still sorting out some other prizes (any donations welcome!), but the quilt is the “big prize”. The ‘plates’ were put together by different people, and the quilt assembled by Jennifer.

This lovely scrap Linus quilt by Ruby is her 87th! With another two in progress, by the time it’s our exhibition in August, Ruby should be on her 90th. Way to go Ruby!
Putting this milestone another way: that’s nearly 90 children who’ve received a Linus quilt thanks to Ruby .
Being such a lovely summer’s day wet day, it was perfect to be indoors for some quilting. Jenny did a roundup of things related to our exhibition next month:
- S & Q for the banner have been made, other letters have been taken by volunteers. Also need 3×3″ blocks to decorate the banner.
- The proceeds of the Dresden plate raffle quilt (see photo below) will go to Skye Cancer Care. Donations of other prizes for the raffle will be most welcome.
- Remember to let Jenny have the details of the quilt(s) you want to exhibit.
No wonder it’s been raining, Lin’s been working on a quilt that’s got yellow in it, and a circle amongst the triangles. Isn’t it just fabulous?! Vote all round was for only one circle.
Courthouse steps meets log cabin in this quilt by Irene. You can’t really see it in the photo, but the picture blocks in the centres, and one of the other fabrics, have the purple in them too.
Other Works in Progress:
Jenny’s made the first two blocks in our banner, and volunteers have taken all the other letters. Please let Jenny have them by the UFO Day (to be confirmed, but probably Aros 23 July).
We also need lots of 3″ blocks or shapes to be added around the letters.
