Friends of the Library quilt raffle

Friday, February 21, 2014

The Friends of the Merrimack Public Library are holding a quilt raffle fundraiser that runs through June 8.

Called “Stars Over Merrimack,” the quilt-top design includes large and small stars made up of dozens of different fabrics arranged over a soft beige background. The border and backing fabric are deep blue. The quilt was assembled by the Merrimack Remanants Quilters who donated it to the Friends of the Library. It measures approximately 75-by-95-inches and will cover a twin-size bed or serve as a queen-size bed topper. It is constructed of all cotton fabrics that have been machine pieced and then machine-quilted.

Raffle tickets are priced at $1 each or six for $5. Tickets can be purchased from members of the Friends of the Merrimack Public Library; visit the library’s online calendar to see dates when the Friends are scheduled to sell tickets. The winner will be drawn after the library’s big June Book Sale on June 7 and 8. For more information, contact the library at 424-5021 or visit www. merrimacklibrary.org.
