IPM 2018 Quilt Raffle

The 2018 IPM Quilt Block Challenge ended January 31 with 36 blocks received from all over Ontario. The 18 blocks that best representing the theme “We Grow for the World” were made into the 1st prize Quilt using the 2018 IPM logo as a centrepiece. Annette Angood had been tasked with hand appliqueing this logo and it is stunning! Sashing and backing for the quilt were donated by Northcott Fabrics who have traditionally been generous in this area to previous IPMs. The quilt was assembled by the Chatham-Kent Quilters’ Guild IPM Quilt Show Committee earlier this month and unveiled at their March general meeting. Winners of the Block Challenge will be announced in May but all three of those blocks appear in the quilt. See if you can guess which are first, second and third. Judging was done by a panel of 30 quilters who each did a secret ballot. Only one vote separated first and second place!
