The Atlanta Quilt Corner held the third quilt raffle drawing on July
4th, at The Dixie Restaurant in McLean. The theme of the
Independence Day quilt is “Honoring Our Military”. John Hanson was
excited to hear he won the quilt. John, a long haul trucker, from
Tennessee, picked up his quilt, from The Dixie, on July 9th.
The fourth and final raffle quilt is called “The Colors of Fall.”
The raffle drawing will be September 14th, at the Atlanta Fall
Festival, 9:00 p.m. Raffle tickets are available at The Dixie, where
the quilt is on display, until the Atlanta Fall Festival. Tickets
will also be available for sale at the Atlanta Fall Festival,
Thursday, September 12th; Friday, September 13th; and Saturday,
September 14th, 5:00 p.m. thru 9:00 p.m.
The Atlanta Quilt Corner will donate 75 percent of the raffle
proceeds to the Atlanta Memorial Community House for maintenance
projects as a ‘thank you’ for the use of the house basement to
create and finish the 250 quilts made each year.

The remaining 25 percent will go toward maintaining the sewing, serging,
embroidery machines, and purchasing non-donated supplies used for the
construction of our quilts.
Coming this fall, an all day Saturday “Fidget Quilt” workshop, to be held at the
Atlanta Memorial Community House. The results of the workshop will be donated to
the local Alzheimer Association. All quilt supplies will be furnished.
