    2017 RAFFLE QUILTS
    We are proud to present two quilts for this years’ raffle,
    "The Garden Imagined" and "A Garden Mosaic".


    "The Garden Imagined"is 78" X 94" and was quilted by Nicki Sue of Heartbeat Quilting in Spokane Valley, WA.



    "A Garden Mosaic"" is 64" X 80" and was quilted by Sew-Into-Quilts & Sew-Fix-It, LLC (Twila Prociw) in Deer Park, WA.

    We thank Mary Sue Suit for her permission to use her technique for our path in "The Garden Imagined" and for allowing us to modify her design "Pierre" in making "A Garden Mosaic". These are included in her book "A New Turn On Drunkard's Path".

    WSQ members were asked to design and make blocks to represent what they'd see in an English flower garden. Thanks to all who made wonderful and creative blocks. These blocks are incorporated in both quilts. "The Garden Imagined" is a design by Naomi Hall, a WSQ member, and is ONE of a kind. A WSQ original.

    Each quilt will also have two pillows presented with each.





    Drawing for the quilts will be on the last day of our 2017 quilt show, at 3:00 pm on Sunday, Oct 22 at the Spokane County Fair & Expo Center. "The Garden Imagined" will be drawn first.
