A group of quilters in my neighborhood put together this beautiful Cactus Blossom quilt which was raffled off to benefit the Civano Community School and Civano Aging in Community. I'm proud to say my blocks are numbers 5 and 10. Thanks to Joanna Norman of Forever Green Quilts
for heading the project and getting the quilt into wall-hanging condition.
The raffle was the culmination of The 6th Annual Civano Art & Quilt show, which included a concert by Trails and Rails, a silent auction, used book sale, and plate lunches. All in all, over $2700 was raised! The event gets bettere every year and credit for the success goes to the hard work of Mare and Maureen, proprietors of the Inn at Civano and just all-around great community members.
