Cornish Hen Party…

Each year (for the past three or four years) The Cornish Quilters host the Cornish Hen Party – only hens allowed – Chicks and Roosters are asked to stay home…

And each year we make a quilt that we raffle off…Each woman attending gets a free ticket and if you wish to improve your odds you can buy more tickets.  The money we raise from the sale of the extra tickets goes to furnish backings, batting, and fabric for the quilts we make and give to those in our community who have suffered from illness, fire or other unavoidable tragedy, or sometimes a death. 

This year the quilt was so cute:

Isn’t it cute?

 

Even the backing is cute – here’s a close up:

And, we always chose a winner at the end of the evening:

Kathy was the winner…

Tomorrow I’ll show you photos of the rest of the evening!
