Quilt Raffle to Benefit Friends of Lakeshore Library
A handmade queen-sized quilt created by members of the Tow Quilters Club was presented to the Friends of the Lakeshore Library (FOLL) at the Friends’ quarterly meeting on July 17 to be raffled as a fundraiser for the library.
Pictured (L to R) are quilters Joy Wildey, Peggy Ford, Gloria Buchanan, Ann Barthel, and Barbara Barnes, and FOLL President George Bold. Quilters not pictured are Edith Conrad, Linda Jackson, Queenie Walker, Nancy Brandt, Linda Wallen, and Joan Whistler.
Much of the process of piecing and quilting was completed during the quilters’ regular Tuesday afternoon sessions in the library meeting room. The group selected a Disappearing Hourglass pattern and used beautiful batik fabric, applique, and feather quilting for this one-of-a-kind masterpiece, which can be seen at the library.
The Lakeshore Friends, a 501(c)(3) nonprofit organization, will use the proceeds of the quilt raffle to further their support of the library, which includes funding for programs and purchase of materials, equipment, and supplies. Tickets are $3 each or four for $10 and can be purchased at the Library or from Friends members. The drawing will take place on Saturday, October 19 during the 15th anniversary celebration for the library building. You need not be present to win. Call Lakeshore Library at 325-379-1174 for more information.
