A Joyful Day - Basket Bouquet

Our 60”x67” quilt was adapted from a pattern by the late Janet Ludwig of Chickadee Charms.  The quilt’s organizer, Laura Rucker, met Janet during a time she spent in Buffalo WY, and was impressed by her friendliness and enthusiasm. The quilt was made by Laura Rucker, Katie Gwinn, Sam Hills, Rita Kennedy. and Teri Sartain, and was quilted by Lin Squires, who included many whimsical quilting motifs.  A close look reveals 3-D prairie points, scallops and bow. There are embellishments and quilting surprises throughout the quilt.  We have dedicated this 2020 Opportunity Quilt to Janet Ludwig's spirit, and the enthusiasm she shared with all she met.  "We hope this quilt brings a smile to your face, and it reminds you to enjoy each and every day.”


We will sell tickets throughout the year and draw the lucky winner at our quilt show on Saturday, April 4, 2020.
