ELIQ 2011 Raffle Quilt--tickets available!

Below are two photos of the finished raffle quilt for my guild.  Isn't it beautiful?  It will be on display at the Eastern Long Island Quilters Guild 30th Annual Peconic Quilt Show the first weekend in June.  Quilts are always, and I mean ALWAYS, more beautiful in person than they are in a photograph.

Raffle tickets are $1.00 each; 6/$5.00.  The drawing will be held June 5, 2011 at 3:45 pm.  Winners need not be present.  You can email me at if you'd like to purchase tickets or you can contact the guild.  Proceeds from the annual raffle support a fund at Suffolk Community College for a one year scholarship to a student in the area of design.

First Prize: Queen-sized Granny's Stars quilt pictured below, made by ELIQG members, based on the design by Nancy Mahoney as seen in Fons & Porter Magazine, quilted by Debbie Higgins, Divine Quilting, Calverton, NY (that's me!)
Second Prize: Baby Lock, Molly sewing machine donated by Pieceful Quilting, Riverhead, NY
Third Prize: Quilter's Basket
