2018 Raffle Quilt
Mareah's Memories 82"x96"

The 2018 Pella Area Quilt Guild Raffle Quilt is Mareah’s Memories. The Quilter who created this beautiful quilt, Peggy Freligh, said it reminded her of Mareah Scholte’s story about her dishes. When Mareah was emigrating over from the Netherlands she brought a set of dishes that was special to her. Unfortunately they were all broken by the time they got to Pella. For more of the story please go to the Scholte House Museum where some of those broken dishes are still on display today.

 The quilt is pieced together by Peggy Freligh including the flower blocks that are hand appliqued. The quilt is machine quilted by Linda Schminke. Sadly our friend Peggy found out she had cancer not to long after finishing this quilt and passed away March 1, 2018. Peggy was an avid quilter and made more than 100 quilts for local veterans, pediatric patients in the hospital etc. In honor of her we are raffling this quilt as she encompassed our mission as a guild to promote the appreciation, heritage and art of quilting which is emphasized through making quilts to give to charitable causes. The funds from the raffle go to making more quilts to give to these charitable causes. 

Our sub pages will be updated with the winners after the show.
