The UU Quilters were inspired to make a quilt reminiscent of the Underground Railroad quilts after hearing a talk at the church and learning about the Oberlin Rebellion.In November 2015. We started the quilt, made with reproduction fabrics from the Civil War, and finished it in January 2017.
Seven of our members worked on it, piecing the blocks based on a pattern called the Oberlin Star. We then hand quilted the entire top of the quilt. Tickets for a raffle are being sold after church in Goddard Hall: six tickets for $5, or $1 per ticket.
The drawing for the quilt will be held on Sunday, April 30, before the Annual Meeting. You don't have to be present at the drawing to win--just buy the winning ticket! Funds raised by the raffle will help support church programs.
