The lovely Raffle Quilt is titled “Rainbow of Shooting Stars” and measures 95″ x 96″. Those working on the quilt wanted to make it a little more modern this time and to blend styles to appeal to a broad range of people. It was felt that the pattern “Shooting Star” by Edyta Sitar of Laundry Basket Quilts done in a rainbow of color on a “modern ” soft grey background fit the bill. Fabric kits were cut and many Stray Threads members sewed the individual blocks and the pieced sashing strips. Others helped appliqué the stars onto the background squares and then the center circles onto the blocks. Once assembled by Kathy Harris and Kathleen Wragg-Baker, the quilt was given to Barbara Dau to appliqué the border sections. Long Arm Quilting was then done by Kathleen Wragg-Baker. Many thanks for fabric donations by Gathering Fabric Quilt Shop and the many hands that went into this quilt. Tickets are available for $1 each from guild members and will be on sale at the quilt show. Raffle ticket sales are restricted to within WA State. The raffle drawing will be held on November 1, 2018.
