 Maine Quilts 2023 Raffle Quilt “Lepidoptera”

This queen sized (94×99) quilt was donated by Linda Throckmorton, a charter member of Pine Tree Quilt Guild. It began as a teaching project of reverse applique. She made kits for each block for the members of her local chapter. The chapter chose another project instead and they sat around Linda’s home for a couple of years when she decided to make them herself. Lucky for us! The result is these expertly reverse hand-appliqued butterfly blocks that make up this colorful quilt!

Machine quilted by Marlene Wilbur.

Chapter raffle ticket packets were available at the meeting – those not picked up will be mailed to the chapter contacts.  Floaters will receive their raffle tickets in the mail. We ask each PTQG member show their support by making a purchase of a minimum of 2 books of tickets for $10.

For additional tickets please contact Elly Simard at ufoquilter1@gmail.com
