“Rainbow Fish,” which measures 95”x105,” is an original design by Jane Haworth, inspired by the “Folksy Fish” pattern by Sarah Elizabeth Sharp of nohatsquilts.  Guild members Chere Yamasaki, Sheila Lindquist, Lynn Tubbe, Carol Riggert, Mona Wooden, Katie Carnahan, Sharon Rizzato, Marylee Drake, Maryann Mealhow, and Petra Haworth helped create the fish.  It was made from some of Jane’s hand-dyed fabrics, plus batiks, Kaffe Fassett and other fabrics donated by guild members, including some from the stash of Margarita Wilcox.  It was quilted by Beth Handy.  We will sell tickets all year and draw the winning ticket at our quilt show on Saturday, April 7, 2018.  You need not be present to win.

(beginning 10/20/15)
