HGTV 2010 RAFFLE Quilt Group Project:

Each of the years I've been a member of the HGTV Quilters board... the group has contributed blocks to make up a charity quilt and sell raffle tickets for to raise money for some great causes.

Usually our coordinator, quiltaholic requests needle turn applique which is something I don't know how to do... but boy do they make up some BEAUTIFUL quilts! So anytime I get the chance to make a pieced block I'm all over it ;)

She's already calling for blocks for next years group quilt that will be called "Feathered Flowers" and while all of the flower blocks will be needle turn applique, she did ask for tonal blue and red 9 patch blocks. :) That I CAN do!

Here they are nothing spectacular ......yet! Just wait and see what they will grow up to become... link below.

Are you curious to see what our finished quilt will look like next year. ;) Here is what Quiltaholic posted about how she thought up this project and the link is below. What do you think?

So, I googled raffle quilts and found this photo! It is a raffle quilt that was designed by Linda Yokelson, Oriene Springstoh, and Helen brady, all from the Riverwalk Quilters Guild in Napersville, IL. I spoke with Mrs. Yokelson this morning and she has graciously given me permission to show their quilt and to use their idea for the 2010 raffle quilt! You can visit their website at: http://www.riverwalkquilters.com/rafflequilt.htm

RAFFLE INFO: The ticket sales for this quilt will begin April 1st 2010 and go through September 15th, 2010!!

100% of the funds will go to the Ronald McDonald House of California.

Love from Texas!
