QUILT SHOW 2018 TOMBOLA
We would love to receive a quilt donation from you for our quilt show.
It can be any size as long as it’s perimeter doesn’t exceed 98”. Sample sizes might be
24”x24”, 16”x31”, 14”x35”. So quilters, put your thinking cap on!
Some examples of quilt types are wall hangings, table runners, place mats, banners, postcards, pillows, zippered pouches, fibre art collages.
We encourage you to use a technique that you’ve learned in a workshop to create a new piece.
Once you’ve finished your quilt, please label it. It doesn’t have to be fancy!
You can give it to me for safe keeping until the show.
