After the blocks are taken down, you can choose to donate your block to the museum to be sewn into our next Opportunity Quilt! Every year we have a quilt we raffle and this is your chance to be a part of that quilt!

If you choose not to donate your block, please send a self-addressed and stamped envelope along with your block so it can be returned to you after August 3, 2019.
