2022 GVQC Raffle Quilt

GVQC 2022 Raffle Quilt  Yes - fuzzy on purpose! Work in progress.  Let your imagination run - this quilt will be stunning!
The 2022 raffle quilt is a unique vision designed by Genesee Valley Quilt Club members Theresa Alano (concept design and applique blocks) and Beth Brewer (pieced blocks). This bold and modern vision shows just what can be done with simple shapes and a limited palette of solid colors. GVQC members created the 85 blocks which will be framed by a large scalloped border. The quilt was longarm quilted by club member, Kim Werth.

Raffle Quilt Time Table:

September 2021 - Raffle Quilt will be revealed at the September Genesee Valley Quilt Club meeting. Photos posted here. December 2021 - Raffle quilt tickets will go on sale and be available from any member of GVQC. May 22, 2022 - Raffle Quilt drawing will be held about 3PM at Genesee Valley QuiltFest quilt show. Need not be present to win.

GVQC Selects Quilts of Valor as 2022 Charity

Recipient

For each quilt show Genesee Valley Quilt Club chooses a charity to receive procedes from the sale of tickets for the raffle (opportunity) quilt. It is with pleasure that GVQC announces the Finger Lakes chapter of Quilts of Valor as the designated charity for the 2022 Raffle Quilt proceeds. The Finger Lakes chapter of the Quilts of Valor is a group first formed in 2015 with the intent to make a big impact in our local community! The local chapter is part of the national Quilts of Valor Foundation whose Mission is to cover all military individuals who have been touched by war, active, reserve or retired, with comforting and healing Quilts of Valor. Under the guidance of the national foundation strict regulations are followed to ensure the quality of each quilt awarded. Quilts of Valor quilters, including long-armers, are all volunteers. They volunteer their time, effort and all supplies to complete quilts. As such, they gladly accept any donations. Barb Frost, local Quilts of Valor representative reports, “We have the privilege of awarding our quilts to qualified individuals at a personal level. We are dedicated to The Veterans Outreach Center and have awarded 128 quilts to their residents which brings our total number of quilts awarded to 259. This year the GVQC has chosen the Finger Lakes Quilts of Valor as their charity to receive proceeds from the QuiltFest raffle quilt. We are so thankful as this will surely help us to achieve our goals.”
