A Fun-Filled Quilt Captures Life at the Beach!

SUNSET BEACH, CALIF.– Quilts can be functional, but they also may tell stories. The quilt in left photo is the current grand prize in a drawing to raise money for community programs such as music in schools. The causes are worthy ones, and if you have the winning ticket, you get a one-of-a-kind, professionally-sewn quilt created by the all-volunteer Las Damas organization. It’s a gift filled with meaning, and a tradition of giving that began in 1976 when the first quilt was constructed. Each year some 30 volunteers (give or take a few,) select icons reflecting the local environment such as sunshine, the beach, the ocean, flip flop sandals, sailboats, whales, a seahorse and a shovel & pail, and create them on equally sized squares for the fun-filled blanket.  If you are interested in purchasing tickets for this item, they cost around $5 each.  The drawing takes place on Mother’s Day, May 12, 2013 during the Sunset Beach Art Festival and the winner is not required to be present.
