Raffle quilt: "Bickford's Garden"

Eighteen quilt blocks and pieces for two more blocks were found in a pizza box by friends
sorting fabric from the late Joyce Bickford, a HDQG member. This find became their “Ah
Ha” moment. With the help of some friends a quilt was designed.

After much discussion and planning, the idea was presented to and accepted by the
Board of HDQG. The blocks were finished and the body of the quilt completed. The
applique border was designed and completed. The borders were added to the body of the

The custom quilting using patterns from the applique flowers was completed. The binding
and sleeve were completed.

And this is how “Bickford's Garden” grew!
