Habitat Raffling Quilt To Benefit Women Build
Habitat for Humanity of the NC Sandhills is raffling off an intricately designed quilt to raise money for the upcoming Women Build in September.
The quilt, called "Women Bloom," was designed by Ellene Place, the former treasurer for the Habitat Board of Directors.
Place chose the pattern, "A Blooming 9 Patch" for the quilt. On one side, the pattern begins with a lively green center and radiates outward in a rectangular style, transitioning to red, lavender, yellow, green, and light blue layers.
On the reverse side is a green and blue background with red birds and flowers dispersed throughout to make an eye-catching quilt design.
This queen-sized quilt is being raffled off for $1 per ticket or six tickets for $5.
The drawing will take place Aug. 29. The money will go to the construction of the Women Build house in September.
Anyone who wants to see the quilt can stop by the Habitat Moore Store on N.C. 5. or visit www.sandhillshabitatwb.weebly.com to see photos of it. Anyone needing more information about the quilt or Women Build can call Amanda Jakl at 295-1934.
This special Women Build is made possible by various supporters in the community, including Panera Bread, Southern Pines Rotary and Modern Woodmen of America. Sponsorship opportunities are still available.
Anyone wanting to be part of this unique project can contact Jakl or Judie Wiggins at 295-1934 to learn more.
