Opportunity Quilt (aka The Raffle Quilt)
Tickets Now Available
Virginia Quilt Museum's 2013 Opportunity Quilt is a reproduction of the oldest quilt in the museum's collection. A Tree of Life Center Medallion, the reproduced quilt is made from the Chintz Medallion collection of fabrics by Quilting TreasuresTM. The fabric line faithfully copies the fabrics in the original quilt, created around 1810.
The new quilt, 80" square, was machine pieced and quilted by Josephine Millett of Mount Jackson, Va. A center printed panel is surrounded by flying geese in turkey red prints, and multiple borders in greens, tans, and browns. Read more information about the original quilt in the book VIRGINIA QUILT MUSEUM, which features many of the quilts in the museum's permanent collection.
Tickets are available for $1 at the museum. Tickets may also be purchased from the Museum, museum members and at various show venues during the year. All proceeds from ticket sales will directly benefit the museum. Thank you for your support!
