The Brownwood Quilt Guild will not have the annual quilt show this year, so the 2014-2015 raffle quilt drawing will take place during the monthly meeting on April 21,2015.
A portion of the proceeds will be given to help support the Ark Domestic Violence Shelter in Brownwood, Texas.

Eight 1/8th’s Challenge
Last month the guild members were presented an unusual challenge.
Eight fat eighth bundles were made from 8, one yard cuts of fabric donated by
Debby Kratovil . Anyone who wished to participate in this challenge could put their name in the “HAT” for a chance to win prize packages valued over $200.00.The Wild West Saloon fabric they would be using for the challenge was not revealed until after all the names were drawn. They could make anything of their choosing, but some or all of the 8 different fabrics had to be used, and they could add more fabric if they wanted to.
