I Won!

At the Maine Quilts annual quilt show at the end of July, I bought seven raffle tickets for this quilt. I sat across the aisle in Raffle Alley in the Maine Machine Quilters booth all morning long, selling tickets for ours and admiring this one. Finally I walked over and bought one ticket, then went back the next day and bought a book of six more. Yesterday morning, JeanR called and told me I'd won the quilt, and I met her in Augusta this morning to pick it up.

The quilt is called "Scraps of Green", made by the Narrow Gauge Quilters in Phillips, Maine. It is machine quilted with a small ivy leaf, and I just love it. I haven't measured it yet, but I think it must be a queen sized quilt. After I take the sleeve off and give it a good wash, it's going right on my bed!

I won another raffle quilt four or five years ago, so I was astonished to have won another. I'm still holding tickets for three more raffles that haven't been drawn yet. You just never know, do you?

Lovely-green is one of my favorite colors and this quilt surely shows Green's versatility and beauty.
