Raffle Quilt Top Complete!

One of the highlights of the jamboree was that we got to see the completed raffle quilt top! Isn't it stunning???

Here are some detail shots of the wonderful blocks!

This is one of the three blocks I contributed:

I like the blue one!

This one looks crazy - I didn't make one of these, just the new york beauty and a traditionally pieced one.

Another favourite of mine:

I made this one, too! It was my first one! Progress posted about here.

I like this one, too:

I'm just so utterly amazed that more than 20 different quilters made blocks, with all their different 1/4" seams, because they do differ! And somehow all those blocks fit together into this quilt top! I did hear a few blocks had to be ironed to death to stretch or be redone, but still, very impressive!!

The quilt will be quilted by a long-arm quilter in town and raffled off at this fall's quilt show.

*** Remember that the give-away is still open! See last post ;) ***

I have to tell you a secret...I buy raffle quilt tickets because it's the right thing to do BUT I hope I don't win because I already have too many quilts(and that's after giving a lot away). However, that is one quilt I would love to have a ticket on...are you having a quilt show? when is it? It is stunning.

WOW I LOVE this quilt!! It's wonderful how the NYB blocks are used with the traditional blocks. Do you know who designed it?

Those blocks are incredible! You have perfection with points. All those different colors and patterns really flow so well together in the raffle quilt.
