Raffle Quilt Update
We are pleased to announce that the drawing for the 2020 Raffle Quilt, A-Team Rose of Sharon, will be held on Tuesday, September 22, 2020. Hopefully, this will happen at the September guild meeting. If this meeting is canceled, an alternative location will be determined. Check here or on our Facebook page for details.
This distinctive queen-sized quilt was created by the members of the A-Team, an applique mini group of the Bits ’n’ Pieces Quilt Guild, St Louis, MO.
Each hand appliqued block is a design original using Rose of Sharon elements (scalloped blossoms, leaves, and circles) in various sizes. Inspiration for this quilt is from Sharon Pederson’s Rose of Sharon Block Book.
Early traditional Rose of Sharon quilts from the 1850’s were made using only red, green and white color schemes while today’s contemporary quilts are made with every color of the rainbow. This quilt was made from a selection of batiks and prints.
A-Team’s Rose of Sharon was juried into the 2019 American Quilter’s Society Quilt Show in Paducah, KY, and won a Bits ‘n’ Pieces Best Group Quilt award in 2018.
