PebbleCreek Quilters Celebrate 2017 and the Holiday Season

            Members of the PebbleCreek Quilters Club met in the Tuscany Ballroom on December 18, 2017 for a luncheon.  All enjoyed the recount of activities the past year, a memory time for Sue Godwin, the drawing of the winning raffle ticket for the 2017 Opportunity Quilt and election of officers for 2018.

            In the past year, Donna Aybar reported that the following projects were made and donated by the membership:  173 quilts, 70 breast cancer pillows, 60 dog beds, 25 receiving blankets and 71 hope bags for the New Life Center.  Other items were donated to designated agencies.  Other community service projects for the upcoming 2018 were highlighted.

To purchase the needed supplies for community service projects and maintaining of equipment in the fiber arts room, an annual raffle is held for the Opportunity Quilt which is drawn at the annual holiday luncheon. From hundreds of tickets, Marlene Kuskie won the 2018 Opportunity Quilt, a member of our organization.

A special memorial time was presented by Priscilla Newarski to honor Sue Godwin.  Sue played a very significant role in the creation and future success of the organization.  The family donated a teddy bear that  Sue had made and a raffle was held.  Jan Johnson won the raffle and money from the raffle will be donated to the Wounded Warriors organization.

PebbleCreek Quilters Draw Winner of Opportunity Quilt

It was with great anticipation and excitement that the winner of the Annual Opportunity Quilt Raffle was drawn.  In recent years, several members of the PebbleCreek Quilters make a quilt to be raffled at the Holiday Luncheon.  Proceeds from the raffle are used to buy supplies for community service projects, buy/maintain equipment in the fiber arts room and other activities by the membership.  Marlene Kuskie was the winner/recipient of the 2017 Opportunity Quilt.

The 2017 Opportunity Quilt was created by Cheryl McGovern and Donna Cousino.  The Southwest design of the quilt titled “Desert Ridge Trail” was designed by Elizabeth Anne Quilt Designs and personally pieced by Cheryl McGovern.  Donna Cousino designed and completed the intricate longarm quilting.

The 2018 Opportunity Quilt was revealed January 8 at the monthly meeting.  It was designed and pieced by Jean Fry and quilted by Cindy Santoro.  Look for it at PebbleCreek activities and the March 18, 2018 quilt show.  Tickets are $1 for 1 or 6 tickets for $5.
