Our VFD raffle quilt this year is a real beauty. The pattern is
called “Cake Walk” and it’s pieced with 1930’s and 40’s reproduction fabrics. It’s queen size with 12 squares of hand-embroidered old fashioned baskets and flowers. It looks like something you might find hidden in Grandma’s attic! Those who worked on the quilt are Geneva Brawn, Sue Broyles, Suzanne Crum, Kristy Harris, Candace Henderson, Maurine Johnson, Sandy Kuykendall, Carolyn Perry, Kay Savage, Katherine Simmons and Clara Thomson. Tickets are available at the Cherokee Grocery store and Arrowhead Bank in San Saba, prior to the winner being drawn at the VFD Supper Sep 12th.
