ACQ's Raffle Quilt

2020: MODERN AMISH

Each year ACQ members make a quilt to be raffled in December as a fundraiser for the guild. Raffle proceeds support our charity work, help with speaker travel costs and assist ACQ in many other areas. Tickets for our 2020 quilt will be on sale soon. Tickets are $1 each or 6 for $5. Please help ACQ by participating. 

The Board strongly encourages all members to support this annual fundraiser by either buying or selling at least 12 tickets. 

Modern Amish was made by the following ACQ members who also participate in the Quilters Denver bee: Jen Dietz, Marianne Jeffrey, Carole Fronk, Amy Petersen, Christian Dietz, Karen Burkenheim, Mary Holt, Jan Rosa, Janet Thornber, Barb Pond, and Herb Anderson. Not pictured: Issac Rios Cabera, Susan Roy, Jerry Dunbar, and Rachel Lambrecht.

This quilt was designed by Marianne Jeffery and custom quilted by Amy Petersen. It is foundation paper pieced with fabric that was hand-dyed by Amy. It finished at 96"×96". This quilt has been appraised at $11,500 by quilt appraiser Cindy Brick.

The winning ticket will be selected at our December 10, 2020 guild meeting at 8:00 pm. You can contact an ACQ quilt member to purchase a ticket or watch for us at quilting community events throughout the year. 

Much thanks to everyone who participated in making this quilt. What a talented group of quiltmakers!
