Nevada Crystals Quilt Raffle

April 9, 2010


Nevada Crystals Quilt Raffle Tickets Available


Spring is here, and the members of the Lamoille Woman's Club present yet another beautiful and unique quilt to be raffled off at the upcoming 35th Lamoille Woman's Club Country Fair in June. Raffle tickets are now available for the handcrafted quilt.


This year the quilt is called Nevada Crystals. The 82 inch by 99 inch queen/king sized quilt was sewn by Joyce Kay using a variation of the Fractured Crystals pattern with special permission from Linda Ballard. The ladies of the LWC Sewing Group assisted Joyce in choosing the meaningful and attractive color scheme for the quilt. The machine quilting itself was done by Sharon Thompson. The quilt colors are based on the colors found in the Nevada state flag, blue combined with golden yellow and a coordinating pansy print. The quilt is backed in golden yellow, and the raffle of the quilt includes two matching blue and print trimmed standard pillowcases.


The winning ticket will be selected at the 35th Lamoille Country Fair, on June 27th in the Lamoille Grove and the neighboring grounds of the Lamoille Woman's Club.  Tickets are only one dollar each or six for five dollars.  You do not have to be present at the drawing to win.


Tickets are now available from any member of the Lamoille Woman's Club and at various sites around town.  The Nevada Crystals quilt will be on display, and tickets will be available on Saturday, May 8th at the Home Show in the Elko Convention Center.


The funds raised from the raffle will be used to support local scholarships, LWC activities,. and the community improvement project.  The community, local businesses, and media have played a major role in the success
