Last month Sherry Herringshaw wrote in about an opportunity quilt she did with her guild (designed in EQ of course). That was one cool medallion.

It must be a popular use, because Jan Steinhoff wrote to say she did the same.

Here is Jan’s original EQ design:

Jan says:

This is the quilt that Amador Valley Quilters will market in order to raise money for the guild. We use it primarily to buy materials to make and give away over 500 quilts a year to local shelters We sell tickets to other guilds and at local quilt shows, such as Pacific International Quilt Festival in Menlo Park. The appliqué on the borders is based on patterns from Gwen Marston and Pat Campbell (who also gave permission to me to use them).

Here is the finished quilt:

Hopefully this opportunity quilt gave you just that – the opportunity to do a lot with the money raised. Congratulations to you and the rest of your Amador Valley buddies.
