We are so excited to share news about our Habitat for Humanity of Lincoln Raffle Quilt!  
The quilt raised $3950 for Habitat of Humanity, thanks to our $2,450 in ticket sales and cash donations and $1,500 in matching funds.  
The drawing was held at the International Quilt Study Center & Museum during our Sew Day.  
The Winner is Rennie Austin of Lincoln! 
 Rennie purchased her raffle ticket during National Quilting Day last March at the IQSCM.  She is a quilter and a former 4th grade teacher (taught the history of Nebraska in her classroom). Congratulations, Rennie!  It was a pleasure to meet you and know that our quilt has a wonderful new home.
The quilt was our QuiltCon Charity Quilt for 2017 and hung at QuiltCon in Savannah, GA last February.
