Raffle Quilt

I was commissioned by a group of ladies from our local American Legion to make a quilt for them to raffle off for their scholarship fund. I decided to go with a red/white/blue theme and settled on a Carpenter's Star pattern. All of the fabrics are good quality quilting fabrics. No cheap stuff here! The batting is an 80/20 blend. Finished size is approximately 80" x 90".

Center of Quilt
I did an edge-to-edge design and used Superior Thread's King Tut in a variegated red/white/blue color.
Quilting Detail
My mother graciously helped by finishing the binding since it is no secret in my house that I do not enjoy hand sewing, although I did sew on the label. The name of the quilt was inspired by the pattern. Carpenters are builders, and this quilt will go towards providing funds for some student's future.

Quilt Label

Tickets will be $1.00 each (so I hope the ladies sell lots of tickets!!). I know I will be buying some in hopes of winning it back. If you are interested in purchasing tickets, email me at sally (at) sallysaidsew (dot) com. I am not exactly sure when the drawing will be - possibly May of next year. I will share more details as I get them.
