The Annual Quilt Raffle
The Quilt Raffle is a Festival tradition in Shawano. Talented quilters have donated their pieced quilts to us so that we can pass them on to you. Anyone who has ever made a quilt knows what a gift these quilts have been! It’s called the Quilt Raffle, but it’s more than quilts. Musicians donate CDs and other merchandise. Crafters donate their goods. Sometimes, there's an afghan. Proceeds from the Raffle help keep the Festival affordable.
The 2022 Quilt
This year, the quilt is something special. It’s got a Wisconsin theme, featuring 3 historic places in Door County. It’s awash in violets, the Wisconsin state flower, and is full of the names of the state’s places and people. With a lilac back, this quilt is springtime in Wisconsin. The quilt is 86” x 62”. It was made by Kay McClone, and was donated by Jennifer Maltbey of Bolt & Skein, a quilt supply shop in Shawano. It’s beautiful, and it could be yours.
