Boise Basin Quilters has once again collaborated for a wonderful raffle quilt. This one was more than many years in the making but great things sometimes take time. Ten years ago, Patty Hinkel of The Quilt Crossing in Boise, Idaho made the top, then took it to Empty Spools Seminars and Fall Quilt Market for signatures of well known people in the quilt industry. In 2010, the applique border was added by members of the guild. Cheryl Little of The Cotton Club and Patty Hinkel then returned to Empty Spools and Fall Quilt Market to add additional signatures on the vine around the entire border.
Now, over 100 signatures, including such celebrities as: Alex Anderson, Judith Baker Montano, Jinny Beyer, Caryl Bryer Fallert, Eleanor Burns, Amy Butler, Hollis Chatelain, Nancy Crow, John Flynn, Marianne Fons, Diane Gaudynski, Anita Grossman Solomon, Roberta Horton, Doreen Speckmann, Patrick Lose, Paula Nadelstern, McKenna Ryan, Judy Niemeyer, Robyn Pandolph, Eleanor Peace Bailey, Mark Lipinski, Nancy Pearson, Paul D Pilgrim, Yvonne Porcella, Liz Porter, Kim Schaefer, Elly Sienkiewiez, Edyta Sitar, Ricky Tims, Kim Schaefer, Jean Wells, Phillip Hoffman and many more. The complete list is on Boise Basin Quilters website. (If in bold, now deceased.)
