has been made by Isabel Sunderland, quilted by LInzi Upton who are both award winning quilters.
most generously produced this spectacular Patchwork quilt, based on a design from “Traditions with a Twist” by Blanche Young and Darlene Young Stone”, as her contribution to the fundraising for the Restoration and Development of Christ Church.
Made up of 2,676 pieces, which come together in this wonderful quilt. The
quilt features all the colours of the rainbow, a complex yet subtle and refined design. Measuring 90” X 92” it has to be seen close up to appreciate its beauty and complexity. In a bold step, we have printed 6,000 raffle tickets at £1 each, which we hope will produce £6,000. This is rare chance to own this unique work of Textile Art, it which would grace any room and quite feasibly become a family heirloom.
The raffle for the quilt was launched at the start of April and will be on show over the next few months, at various locations including Johnston’s of Elgin and “Touched by Scotland” until the Raffle was drawn on 30th November 2014.
By purchasing a Raffle ticket for the quilt you will have contributed to this exciting project.
The Raffle raised the magnificent sum of £5,826 for our Restoration Fund. The winner, a quilter herself from near Grantown on Spey, was thrilled to become the owner of this beautiful piece of needlework ,which she will cherish.
Thank you to all those who helped promote the quilt, to the venues where we were generously allowed to display it and all who purchased tickets, and particularly to Isabel and Linzi for their generosity and craftsmanship.
