This quilt is GORGEOUS! This quilt is the opportunity quilt that my guilt guild made this year to raise money for the guild. The quilt is raffled off at the yearly guild show, which is coming up soon. The guild asks for volunteers to take the quilt around to other guilds in hopes that the members of the other guilds will purchase raffle tickets. I volunteered to take it to a guild not too far from home; a guild that I wanted to visit but never got around to doing so.
Never did I ever imagine that this quilt would be sitting on my dining room table for two nights and day. The person in charge of passing the quilt to the volunteers chose me since I live not too far from her.
I was so excited and so nervous at the same time. Excited that I could spent time drooling over the quilt for hours and nervous that nothing bad would happen to the quilt while I had possession of it.
Needless to say, I purchased $15 dollars of raffle tickets for myself, something that I never do.
