Fairholme Raffle Quilt

The Fairholme Raffle Quilt is finished, and she is a beauty!

The talented ladies of Fairholme Quilters have been busy all year making the blocks. The quilt measures 60 X 80 inches and is made from cotton fabrics with long arm quilting expertly done by Jo- Ann Phillps. The quilt is hand and machine pieced and was  designed by Miriam Jones (me!) and Janice Freelander. It is a stunning French quilt and a credit to all those who have worked on this project. Special thanks to Janice Freelander and Jill O'Conner. 

All money raised from the sale of raffle tickets  will be going to Studio Artes . Studio Artes is a local program that offers creative programs for those with disabilities. Truly inspiring and life changing programs. You  can find out more about Studio Artes here. The raffle will be drawn on April 10th at the Fairholme Quilters Quilt Show at Thornleigh Community Centre. Save that weekend in your 2016 diaries. I know - 2016 is filling up fast already ! 

To launch the raffle quilt, tickets will be available on Saturday 5th December at Hornsby Shopping Mall , as part of the Studio Artes Ride- a -Day Fundraising event . We can be found between the fountain and the mall entrance (David Jones side) The quilt will be on show from 10.30 . Tickets are $2 each or 3 for $5 .  I would love to see you there! Who knows- you may buy the winning ticket!! 

Happy sewing, love Miriam x
