The K Closet Quilt

From found strips in a museum closet, Brenda Morgan has crafted this year's quilt for the Log Cabin Days Festival Quilt Raffle. What we know for sure: most of the fabrics are dated from the 1920's and 1930's with a few from the Civil War era; each nine patch block was sewn by an individual and combined into single strips; the strips were discovered in one of the Museum's closets. Taking two months to assemble, Brenda added off-white strips to create a double bed sized quilt-78 x 84. Thank you, Brenda! Tickets for the raffle are available here.

Tickets are 1 for $1, 6 for $5. You may purchase tickets online now in packets of six using the link below.
