Annual Quilt Raffle

2013 Quilt Raffle 

Lighthouse Sampler

The quilt being raffled off by OPS this year (2013;is a quilt like you have never seen before…and may never see again! The center Ocracoke Lighthouse square was designed and meticulously hand-appliqued and hand-quilted by Jane Griffin. The surrounding lighthouses were designed and beautifully hand-appliqued by Cindy Hichens and Ann Borland. Cindy also pieced the corner Mariner’s Compass squares. Then, the Ocracoke Needle and Thread Club gathered together to add the border, binding and hand-quilt this usable art piece.

This quilt is dedicated in memory of our fellow quilter and loyal volunteer at the Ocracoke Preservation Society Museum, Rosemary Howe Wetherill (1927-2012). She taught us not only about quilting but also about how to enjoy what we have. She was an inspiration to us all with her feisty spirit and her love of color and crafts. We miss her very much.

The Ocracoke Needle and Thread Club donated this beautiful queen sized quilt to the Ocracoke Preservation Society as a fund-raiser. It will be displayed throughout the 2013 season in the bedroom at the OPS Museum. Raffle tickets are $1 for one or $5 for six or $10 for twelve and so on. The drawing will be held at the end of November, 2013. It’s a fabulous quilt, and you can’t win it if you don’t buy any tickets, so get yours now! Tickets are available at the museum shop, or by contacting the OPS Museum directly at JLIB_HTML_CLOAKING  or by calling 252-928-7375.
