A 2004 Raffle Quilt...

Looking through and cleaning up my files on my computer today, I found a photo of a raffle quilt I made in 2004. I had forgotten all about it!

This is an Art to Heart, "Many Thanks" quilt pattern, by Nancy Halvorsen. If I recall correctly, it is 64 inch square... This was the "very first" fully completed quilt I had made. Colors are not the best, but I have learned since then, and I had also tried making mitered corners... Obviously they didn't work out with my first try...
This wall-quilt was started in the early summer of 2004 and completed for the November 3rd, 1st Anniversary Raffle Draw, of our Oakbank Catholic Church Formation Committee. It brought in close to $800. The co-worker of a close friend won the quilt, and was really happy with her win. 8-)

Very nice quilt, Myra, and a wonderful cause to raise money for. Very appropriate to post that quilt on Thanksgiving. I like the center with the words. And the rest of it too!

Happy Thanksgiving!

It looked really nice to me Myra. Especially for your first one. Your corners looked great and colors. We are our own worse critics aren't we? I always see what I have done wrong and point it out to everyone. Glad you took pictures. I have not made any where near as many as you. I need to find more time for it I guess. Have a great day!

This quilt is just beautiful. I remember it well. Lots of hand stitching on it and really turned out great. I think you are being way too hard on yourself girlfriend! The colors are beautiful!
