The whimsical and dynamic “Moosin’ Around” quilt has found a new home! Congratulations to Paul Kelly of Severna Park, Maryland, winner of the 2018 annual quilt raffle. Shirley Fedora of Homer, Alaska took home the bonus wall-hanging quilt this year, titled “Swamp Rose”. The Pratt Museum’s annual quilt raffle is made possible through the incredible teamwork and generosity of the Kachemak Bay Quilters, who imagine, create, and donate a large raffle quilt each year; and the Patrons of the Pratt Society (POPS), for organizing the raffle each year. We appreciate our amazing partners and thank everyone who purchased tickets. This year’s quilt raised $4,113, which will be used to benefit Museum programs in 2018. We can’t wait for the unveiling of the next quilt in May 2018, just in time for the Museum’s 50th anniversary!
