Vera Bradley raffle quilt

This is the second year that I've been asked to design and make a quilt using Vera Bradley fabric for a raffle quilt for their Breast Cancer Foundation.   Last week I received the fabrics for this years quilt.
Aren't they just lovely!  This is the Pink Swirls fabric line.  Lots of pink and orange...not what I'd normally put together, but it looks great with the purples, teals, greens and white.

The quilt ties in with the Elkhart County Quilt Garden Tour (you really must come see all 19 of these beautiful gardens if you are in the Northern Indiana area this summer).   I helped to design the quilt garden at Linton's Enchanted Gardens which ties in with the flower designs in the fabric and the quilt.  Linton's is heading up the raffle quilt this year.  If you are interested in buying a raffle ticket you can contact them at:  1-888-779-9333

See more info on the quilt gardens here:

You can also see the finished quilt (I HOPE to have it finished by then!) at The Gathering on Saturday April 18 at the Northern Indiana Event Center (RV & MH Hall of Fame Complex) 21565 Executive Parkway, Elkhart, IN.

This will be the first time the quilt will be displayed and raffle tickets sold.  Did I tell you the tickets are $5?

I'll keep you posted on the quilt's progress- so stay tuned.
