This year's raffle quilt 'Anniversary Quilt' is based on a design published in the U.S.A. in 1870, basically named ' Square A'. The pattern flourished and later became known as Carpenter's Wheel, Star and Diamond and Double Star. The committee displayed a Bethlehem Star quilt at the 2014 Springwood Community Quilt Show made in the 1930's based on this pattern and due to its popularity decided to collaboratively construct the 2015 raffle quilt based on this design.
Who is that playing 'Peek a Boo?'
The owner of the 1930's quilt donated fabrics in soft pastels and contrasting patterned pieces to enhance the design which includes white squares and triangles wrapped around the diamonds.

|Thanks Robyne for all your hard work putting the blocks together. The quilt will be edged in colourful kites as an alternative to binding. Looking forward to the next step.|
