Deep Space


Our 2021 Opportunity Quilt, “Deep Space,” is based on the quilt 'Uno' by Katie Pasquini Masopust as shown in her book 3 Dimensional Designs.  Karren Lusignan, the quilt’s organizer, drafted the pattern.  The quilt was made by Marylee Drake, Karren Lusignan, Jan Petre, Karin Polli, and Teri Sartain.  Beth Handy quilted it.  It is 51" wide and 55" long.


We will sell tickets throughout the year and draw the lucky winner on Saturday, April 10, 2021.
