As some of you know, a quilt circle gathers every Wednesday evening at the Hamilton Gallery to make quilts. This is a picture of the current quilt in process. The theme of this quilt is Sunflowers which is the gallery logo. Each square is someone’s interpretation of a sunflower. There are 16 squares so only a few are pictured below. Each square is framed in black & the back is a gold color – it measures approx 4’ x 4’ square. They are making this quilt as a fundraiser for the Hamilton Gallery which is a non profit art gallery in the Hamilton-Lauraville neighborhood. We are selling raffle tickets for a chance to win this quilt for $1 per ticket or 6 tickets for $5. The drawing will be held at the gallery on December 3rd (you do not need to be present to win). If you’re interested in buying any tickets, please let us know. This could make a lovely Christmas gift for someone special!
