This is a raffle for "A Tisket, A Tasket Quilt" shown in the pictures.
The quilt measures " 96x 96". Queen size with poly cotton blend batting. Machine quilted on a Millenium. I started this quilt in Spring of 2012. All fabrics are 100% cotton Windham Fabrics purchased from the beautiful Patchwork Co. Quilt Shop in Windham,N.Y..This quilt was designed by Ann Wanke.
This quilt was made by me, Kathy Bruce, for the Empty Bowls event fundraiser for the Regional Food Bank. The Empty Bowls event is run by the Gilboa-Conesville Art Club under the guidance of the amazing Mrs. Sue Kliza. All proceeds benefit the Schoharie County food pantries.(Empty Bowls information can be found at www.emptybowls.net)
My heart hurt for the community members in the Gilboa-Conesville school district when Hurricane Irene destroyed many properties and surrounding landscape. Much of the damage is still visible today. Many people still need a neighborly helping hand. So with that in mind, this quilt was made in an attempt to raise money for the surrounding food pantries.
I had to choose an amount for the fundraising goal and $1,000 seems like a crazy huge amount, but it's possible.
For every $10 that you donate your name will go into the hat to win this quilt.
After making your donation, PLEASE Drop me an email so that you are entered in the quilt drawing on May, 1,2013 ( announced at the May 16th event ). In the email state your full name, email and address(in case you are unable to come eat with us...but try to come. It's fun!)
