Raffle Quilt 2003

The town of Chiloquin is raising money to build a community center.  This is a project that is now in its fourth year and is almost ready to break ground and start the construction.  It will be a great addition to downtown Chiloquin and will include a library, and meeting rooms.  Once again as part of the fund raising activities, the Chiloquilters is making a quilt to be raffled off.  What follows here is the instructions for making the quilt, a Log Cabin Quilt.

OK... the above provides enough pieces for ONE block.  We've decided to do FOUR blocks each... So, please make FOUR of EACH of the above pieces.  All of the fabrics should be EARTH TONES.  Examples of Lights would be ... off white, creams, light tan, beige, earthy pale yellows....   Examples of Darks would be browns, deep golds, greens, earthy blues, burgundy, earthy purples.  Notice that I used "earthy" to describe colors such as purple... I think the right purple would work... but a bright, non-earthy purple would NOT work.  The colors should have a brownish, earthy tone to them...  hope this makes sense.  Also, try to avoid those Medium colors that I'll bet we all have ....  we need to try for lights and darks to get a better contrast. And... don't include large print fabrics or plain fabrics. You can use the same dark fabric for all, or most of your dark pieces, or you can use several different dark fabrics for your dark pieces.  The same applies to the light pieces.  So - we really can use our scraps.  If every single piece you cut is a different material, that's OK.  Just use up your scraps.  But also feel free to use the same material for several pieces. They will get all mixed up when we get together to share....

 

Sort all of your pieces by size and by lights and darks.  You should have 16 piles as there are 16 pieces to each block (excluding the center piece which will be provided).  Each of the 16 piles should have 4 pieces in it, as you are going to make 4 blocks.  (Each member of our group is making 4 blocks which will be sewn together to make the 2003 Raffle Quilt).

For ONE block, the pieces needed are as follows:
