Hey all…Today I am going to share a little about an event Ray and his church put together called “The Airing of the Quilts”. It’s an event they do annually to raise money for the mission work the church does or sponsors. Many of you who have donated tops that Ray has finished, have had your quilts featured here so Ray and I wanted to give you chance to see them.
They do both a raffle where tickets can be purchased and put into the bucket of one of the three quilts designated as raffle quilts.
The first three quilts shown in the pictures here are the three raffle quilts.
Clothesline is strung and other quilts can be purchased with all of the proceeds going toward the community programs the church supports.
Isn’t it fun to see all… the quilts on clotheslines?
Other fun activities are planned in conjunction with the quilt sale.
Here are a few more pictures of the quilts…
Please keep in mind, the pictures you see are not the only quilts there.
Ray is the quilt contributor so all of you who made tops, many thanks to you.
You were part of what helped this all happen.
There were some quilts that didn’t sell. You might remember that Ray took those and donated them to the Quilted Twins’ quilt drive to get quilts for Ukraine.
What a fun bunch of quilts.
Many thanks to Ray for the hard work that went into this project.
Ray also sent a video. I am not sure how to get it embedded in this post. I tried and the best I could figure out was to leave this button that says video. You can press it and see if the video will pop up. Sorry I’m not better at that.
The event has their own website. I see from the information that the next Airing of the Quilts will be Saturday, March 18th, 2023. You can bet that many of the quilts you see Ray finish in the time between now and then will be featured there.
You can find the event’s website HERE. There is more information there and many more pictures. It was fun to check it out.
I loved sharing this with you today. Maybe your organization would like to host a similar event. Ray is such a great guy, I’m sure if you contact him, he’d give you more information.
Many-Many thanks to the many of you who hard a part in the making of the quilts for this worthwhile event.
