25th Birthday Quilt 51" X 57"
In 2005 the Greater San Antonio Quilt Guild celebrated their 25th birthday with a party. At that event members signed blocks. The blocks were the result of a block lotto years before and wear donated by winners Carol Bryant and Ruth Felty. In 2006 the board sponsored a design contest for the 25th birthday quilt. Dea Jae Shore won the contest and the blocks were set by a few of the board members. It was basted by the Hand Quilting Bee then quilted by the Institute of Texan Cultures Bee. Ruth Felty bound and finished the quilt including adding a label.
