About this year’s quilt:
Cranes decorate and empower this year’s Art in Redwoods raffle quilt with their well-known abilities to bring happiness, eternal youth, good fortune and longevity. All of which we wish for the winner of this year’s AIR quilt raffle, says quilter Iris Lorenz-Fife.
Each year, members of Pacific Piecemakers Quilt Guild (PPQG) create a full-size quilt for the festival raffle, proceeds of which help to fund the Gualala Arts Young Artist Scholarship.
Melissa Finley celebrated her first year’s membership in PPQG by providing the sparkling Asian fabrics, the rich pieced fabrics and the beautiful concept for this year’s AIR quilt. Melissa also did most of the sewing, assisted by Kalynn Oleson and cheered on by some of the members of the Wednesday Afternoon Quilt Group.
