Auxiliary Quilt Raffle Fundraiser
"The Secret Garden"
The 2018 Auxiliary quilt masterpiece will be on display May 12 through Sept. 22 in the Great Hall of the Oswald Visitor Center. The raffle drawing will be held at 2 p.m. on Sept. 22.
Each year, the Auxiliary creates a show-stopping, handmade quilt for the popular Quilt Raffle Fundraiser. Tickets can be purchased in the Visitor Center for $2.00 each. The raffle drawing will be held at 2 p.m. in the Oswald Visitor Center on the Saturday of the Fall Harvest Sale in September.
This year's quilt is on display in the Oswald Visitor Center and pictured at right. The quilt, created by the Auxiliary Contemporary Quilt Group, is called "The Secret Garden" and was constructed from nine blocks of wool and cotton fabric--all stitched and beaded by hand. It measure 65" X 77", making it ideal as a queen-size bed topper or a wall hanging.

All proceeds go to support the work of the Arboretum.
