Quilt Raffle Tickets For Sale
We are raffling this beautiful, heirloom-quality quilt as part of our annual Garden Show & Sale on May 16th. The quilt was completely hand-sewn by Susan Chabot of Black Mountain from the 'Rose Sampler' pattern designed by Rosemary Makhan. It's a queen-size, all cotton quilt, meticulously hand-appliqued and hand-quilted over an 18-month period. Susan is a master at applique and quilting and has created an exquisite work of art.
Proceeds from the sale will help the committee in its work to make Black Mountain an even more attractive town. Susan Chabot, a long time member of the committee, is moving to Ohio, but the legacy of her work in garden sites and in this beautiful quilt will be with Black Mountain forever.
The quilt is currently displayed at the Monte Vista Hotel. Tickets are $10 and can be purchased from committee members, Monte Vista Hotel or by completing the form on the Contact Us tab.
