|PMQG Guild Medallion - top before quilting|
About half an hour earlier, at the end of the social I still hadn't bought my raffle tickets, so I made my way over to the table. Tickets were $5 each or 5 for $20, so I bought 25 tickets, thinking about how Bob and Maureen always buy their raffle tickets and have such good luck. Maybe one of the tickets would be the winning ticket for the incredible Guild Medallion, one of the two beautiful quilts up for raffle. Even if I wasn't the lucky winner, proceeds would go to the guild, and they deserved every cent.

A second raffle quilt, a stunning Ohio Star, is displayed on the wall.
The Guild Medallion is a special quilt, made by a very special group of people-- the 2014 officers of the Portland Modern Quilt Guild. It was beautifully quilted by Nancy Stovall, an expert long-arm quilter who has a long-arm quilting business here in Portland, and was a year-long project. At every meeting during the year, I admired the progress with the quilt and other "medallion-alongs" made by guild members. There were 19 of them on display at the Thursday's meeting, and I was very impressed.
