We named it "CELEBRATION"!





To the sound of many oooohs and aaaaahs, the 2019 East Cobb Quilt Guild raffle quilt was revealed at the Guild meetings in August!

Created by Stella Lang and adapted (with permission) from the pattern “Urban Owls” by Wendy Williams, the quilt measures 83” x 97” and features machine piecing, machine applique, hand applique, and foundation piecing in a colorful medley of bright, happy fabrics combined with polka dots, black and white prints, and greys. Bella Bamert did the custom quilting, Deborah Jones appliqued the center medallion, and Ben Hollingsworth took this photo. Sixty-nine members of the ECQG contributed to the quilt’s construction.

It is being managed now by Raffle Quilt Sales Chairman, Debbie Ingram, and will go on tour until the Quilt Show, June 6-7-8, 2019. Raffle tickets will sell for $1 each or 6 for $5. Its first stop will be at the North GA State Fair, September 20-30 at Jim Miller Park, where it will be on display in the new Exhibit Hall.

The new lapel pin inspired by the quilt will also be sold wherever the quilt is exhibited, priced at $5. It was designed by Ben Hollingsworth, and is managed by Pins Chairman, Sharon Milam.
