A number of quilters were affected by the Camp Fire in Northern California last year, including one of our TQS guests, Melinda Bula, who lost her home. Another TQS guest, Lynn Wilder, has supplied us with information on how we can help other quilters in the area by purchasing tickets for their opportunity quilt.
-------------------
You can own this beautiful quilt offered by the Paradise Ridge Quilters' Guild. The one year anniversary of the Camp Fire is approaching and the raffle takes place in mid-October for their opportunity quilt. 
 
The guild lost their permanent meeting place and have to meet in Durham. Even though the guild members have scattered around Northern California, they still return for the monthly meetings. 
 
 -  Sweet Surrender pattern by Sue Cody, appliqued and pieced by guild members using Kaffe Fassett fabrics and quilted by member, Marsha Haunschild. 
  
The Ridge Quilters’ Guild from Paradise, California has been overwhelmed by the generous and heartfelt support offered and given by the nation’s quilting community. Many guilds have asked how they can help us.  We believe the best thing you can do for us is to help us help ourselves, by purchasing tickets to our 2019 Opportunity Quilt, “Sweet Surrender” which was saved from the fire. A majority of our guild members lost their homes, quilts, and supplies in the fire and our storage facility was also destroyed. With your support, we will be able to replace our quilt racks and other necessities before we need them for our next show.

Ticket purchases can be made by check sent to Ridge Quilters Guild,  PO Box 1668, Paradise, CA 95967.Tickets are $1.00 each, 6 or $5.00, or 13 for $10.00. Please include your email address so that we can send you confirmation of your ticket purchase and your ticket numbers. To help defray costs you will not receive ticket stubs so please keep your check as your proof of donation for tax purposes. The drawing for this beautiful and hope filled quilt will be on October 15, 2019 at our general meeting.  Thank you for your continued support. For more information, please contact Contact Rae Hainley at Sourdoe43@gmail.com

Streak of Lightning by Amy Pabst is a miniature log cabin quilt that isn't much bigger than the first place ribbon that hangs next to it. While the center blocks are small, take a look at the border, we'd need magnifying glasses for our magnifying glasses. Based on a vintage 1875 quilt, it has over 4,330 pieces.

Streak of Lightning won First Place Miniature Quilts at the Houston International Quilt Festival 2018.
