The Flying Needles Quilt Guild had a unique opportunity this year. The guild constructed THREE opportunity quilts; one for Quilts of Valor, one for Breast Cancer Awareness and one as our regularly scheduled Opportunity Quilt 2017.

This beautiful paper pieced Judy Neimeyer pattern is a show stopper. The batiks feature a soft aqua batik with sea themes and compasses. The quilting, done by Michelle Stewart of Chalkboard Quilts, is a dense pattern of interlocking circles and swirls. Tickets are available from any current Flying Needles member. Contact Sandra Congleton with any further questions.

Under the direction of Deanne Vaughn, the Flying Needles constructed an opportunity quilt in shades of pink. Proceeds from ticket sales will be donated to the Susan G. Koman Foundation to further the research into breast cancer. Tickets are $1.00 per ticket or $5.00 for six tickets. For more information, email firstname.lastname@example.org. The winner will be announced in December 2017.
