What sells raffle quilt tix?

My guild has been having steadily declining sales of tickets for our raffle quilt for the past 8 years or so.  I believe there was a small upward bump one year when we did a paper pieced star quilt that was all blue and green batiks.  Another small bump came when we did a sampler quilt with traditional colors/fabrics.This led us to have a discussion wondering what elements of a quilt tend to attract people and make them want to buy tickets.What have you observed about the popularity of your…See More

Fun and lessons doing the row robin with the UFO group

Posted by Riana Noyes on October 13, 2014 at 8:00am 7 Comments

It was to take us 8 months for 8 participants working at a pace of 1 row/mo. Each person picked a theme, and decided on  "rules" for guidance in the making of the rows to follow. Some had color preferences , pattern choice(s), or simply an "express youself" attitude. Then the first rows ( acting as each quilt's foundation row) were sent out in Jan.
