Description

The Friends of the Lacey Timberland Library are hosting a QUILT RAFFLE to support the fundraising efforts for the library's remodel plans. Tickets are on sale at the Lacey Timberland Library from Oct. 4th - Dec. 6th at $1 per ticket. The winning ticket will be drawn on Friday, Dec. 6. This lovely quilt will be on display in the Lacey Timberland Library beginning on Oct. 1st.

Quilt Background: Every year, the national Modern Quilt Guild hosts a massive quilt show, bringing in teachers and showing hundreds of high-end art quilts. They also invite local modern quilt guilds to participate in a challenge in which each guild makes a quilt for a charity of their choice. For the 2018 QuiltCon in Pasadena, CA, the theme was "modern traditionalism" and the colors were very specific shades of white, yellow, pink, orange, and purple.

This is our quilt, made by the members of the South Sound Modern Quilt Guild. The general pattern of our quilt was devised by our member Stephanie Serrano, who also chose the fabrics. She told us to make some blocks that were traditional bow ties, and in other blocks, to play around with the elements (for example, to drop out some of the colored squares or triangles and have white instead, or to have more than one color in a bow tie).

This quilt is very poignant for us because Stephanie passed away before it was finished. We miss her creativity and brilliance, and we have honestly not wanted to part with this quilt because it feels like a last little bit of her in our guild. But she loved books and we know that she would have been extremely pleased to have her design help the Lacey Timberland Library. We hope you enjoy our modern traditionalism as much as we do.

(P.S. Never put a handmade quilt in a dryer because it will soon be destroyed. To wash it in a washing machine, use the soak cycle, a gentle spin, and air dry it. Quilts can also be dry-cleaned.)
