Isn’t this quilt stunning!  This is the quilt that Chris donated to the St. Joseph Church (Wright Township) in Conklin, MI for the raffle.  Chris made this quilt, but stipulated that she didn’t make it alone as a lot of other women helped.  It is a very large quilt and Chris and I were the only ones in the shop at the time, so I couldn’t get a better picture of the entire quilt.  It is a beautiful quilt and will be raffled off at the Festival on Sunday, August 12th.  Tickets are $1 each or 5 for $6.  Tickets may be purchased at the Attic Window Quilt Shop.  You need not be present to win.  This may be your lucky day.  Call the shop for further details or just stop in and buy a ticket!
