On Display: A Moose for All Seasons - The members of Quilters Above the Clouds are excited to debut their quilt at Tweeds Furniture in Woodland Park during The Moose Is Loose event. The quilt is 65x75" and includes 20 fun and funny blocks, some appliqued by our members with different signs of our Colorado seasons. The design by Buggy Barn means that each moose block is a different assortment of fabrics. The quilt label on the back features a moose wearing a mask, so true to our times! A Log Cabin border provides the final touch on this rustic quilt. It would make a wonderful wall decoration or a cozy and warm throw for a favorite easy chair or couch. Tickets for this quilt are $1 each or 6 for $5. The quilt will be raffled on Friday, December 3, 2021 at 1 PM during the guild's Holiday Party at the Faith Lutheran Church in Divide.
