Queen-size, cotton quilt: Valued at over $500. Tickets, $5.00 each or three for $10.00!

"Log Cabin in the Sunshine and Shadow, Barn Raising with a Spiral Twist"

Chinoiserie Border is gold on black, 80 x 96 inches. Backing is cream and brown fleur de lis. The quilting pattern is called "Deb Swirls." The quilt features a hanging sleeve.

Pieced by Bonnie Ouellette, a founding member of the Thread Heads, and donated to the Seneca Woman's Club to raise funds for the preservation of the Historic Ballenger House.

The Thread Heads have come a long way since their founding only thirteen years ago with exhibits at the National Quilt Museum, American Quilt Society and even a show in Taiwan. Membership extends into Canada.

Log Cabin is a pattern originating in the 1860's. The border and fabrics have remained popular throughout the past 3 centuries.
The floral pieces, the spiral variation, as well as the more modern prints add both color and interest making it both lovely and unique, "Art Quilt."
