Raffle Mania was the main event at Wednesday's guild meeting. Members bring quilt-related stuff they no longer love. Raffle tickets are distributed based on the previous year's attendance (1 ticket per month, 1 ticket for wearing a name tag). Additional tickets are .50 each. I got 17 free tickets and bought 20 more. I contributed 10 5-lb bags of fabric sorted by color (20 yards per bag), two smaller ziploc bags with fabric, and four bundles of 10 books each. (I was ruthless when I selected the fabric to donate. How many years have I had this? Does this really go with anything? Will I ever use this?) (You need to remember that in 2018 I was *given* 470 yards in addition to what I bought.)
I did not return empty-handed. There were a dozen big bundles of books and magazines donated by the family of a guild member who passed away last month. I won three of those stacks. I also won two ziploc bags with, yes, more fabric -- just 27 yards!
In the studio this week:
Nine 6" fireball blocks for the January Block Lotto.
This month's wonky house for the guild BOM.
I have assembled the rows (shown here as columns) for Good Fortune. Borders to come! I really like the design and when the four borders are added it will look smashing.
Thanks to Barbara in Germany who noted the two four-patches the wrong way (second in, third up from the bottom). I managed to sew half the 4p-orange units the wrong way around. I ripped them out and re-sewed them -- but I missed that unit. I've corrected it (as of 2 p.m. Monday).
