Ruth Fredrickson of Kenyon, Minn., won the queen size quilt entitled “The Cut-Up,” along with matching pillow shams and a small, decorative pillow. The pattern was designed by Shelley Robson of Pieced Tree Patterns (owner of the Quilted Forest in Forest City, Iowa).
The proceeds of this fundraiser will go toward the purchase of fabric, batting and quilting costs for the charity quilts made by the Guild.
