Guild members, also members of Quilters’ Quorum, make a raffle quilt annually to benefit the St. Lawrence County Historical Association. This year’s quilt raised $2,200 for SLCHA. The quilt (Q22) is displayed in this show. Another project of Quilters’ Quorum for this year is quilts for Foster children of St. Lawrence County. Guild member Telly Bray has completed 10 quilts so far; two of those quilts are displayed in this exhibit.

HELPING HEATH, A SMALL MASSACHUSETTS TOWN

Poster_10_2.jpg The Tiernan family business did a big job in Massachusetts for National Grid a few years back. The tiny town of Heath let the business use their fairground for headquarters with a good place to park the equipment. The Fair Committee was forced to upgrade their bathroom facilities but had no funding available. Since the Committee had raffles to raise funds, Marcia Tiernan gave them a quilt that was the biggest money maker ever! Yearly, she makes a quilt. The Heath Historical Society made Marcia an honorary member. This year her quilt will be Tumbling Blocks.

LONG ARM QUILTING

Poster_11.jpg Guild members work together to cut, piece, and assemble quilts such as The Animal Friendly Village Quilt and this year’s Block of the Month Quilts. When it comes to finishing the quilts, one member with a long arm quilting machine provides batting, does the quilting, and puts the binding on the quilt. Frequently the quilter is Jill Josephs who is shown here beside her long arm quilting machine.

INDIVIDUAL MEMBERS MAKE A DIFFERENCE

The raffle Quilt above was made for West Seneca, New York, Marching Band Boosters and used to raise money for band competitions and color guard flags. Pieced by Patty Blickwedehl, South Colton, and quilted by Candee Mayer, Lakeview, NY. When the arrival of a premature baby, Madison, presented hardship for the South Colton family traveling back and forth to Burlington, Patty Blickedehl made a raffle quilt. The money was donated to Madison’s family.
