Raffle Quilt

This quilt pattern is from a book titled Women of Grace and Charm: A Quilting Tribute to the Women Who Served in World War II. This book was written by Barb Adams and Alma Allen. 12 blocks make up the Women of Grace & Charm quilts. *"Each block was designed in remembrance of women, who with grace and charm served their families, community and country during WWII. The inner strength and stamina exhibited by these remarkable women, as they or their husbands, fathers or sons left for overseas during the war must not be forgotten. A central pieced star unites the quilt blocks. Just as the blue five-pointed star was placed in the window when a family member left for service, this star in the center of each block is a salute to the contributions and service of these women during this time." A total of 350,000 women would serve in the U.S. armed forces during World War II.

The quilt was made and donated by Paula Hoffmann. Her aunt served as a nurse during World War II. Note the beautiful needle-turn applique work in the center panel.

This quilt is called "Salute", on of a series from the book. The quilting pattern is Abundant Feathers. the thread choice used is Lone Wolf (light tan). The finished quilting date was December 4, 2019 by Patches & Piecework Quilting (sisters Janet Rauch and Cherri Allison) in Macomb, IL. Not including the piecing stitches and the hand applique, there are 279,731 machine quilting stitches in this quilt! The size is 90 inches by 90 inches.
