2017 Raffle Quilt
The East Cobb Quilters’ Guild is pleased to present “Coming Home”, a raffle quilt in honor of our 2017 Georgia Celebrates Quilts® quilt show.
“Coming Home” is an original design collaboration between Pam Cobb, Ben Hollingsworth, Devon Pfeif, and Lynn Rinehart, with custom quilting by Bella Bamert. The quilt was made by more than 40 ECQG members and represents over 400 hours of work. With over 4,000 pieces, this quilt showcases the techniques and skills of our guild members including traditional piecing, paper piecing, applique, fabric art, and custom quilting. Background blocks are pieced entirely from Flying Geese units in varying sizes. The geese and leaves applique is primarily hand-stitched, The quilt is 87” x 84”, and was constructed using a mix of batik and high-quality 100% cotton fabric.
The migration of the geese flying home is represented at first by abstract shapes morphing into increasingly realistic applique, with a final culmination in a hand-painted fabric goose. With the lakeside sunset as the backdrop, falling leaves and cattails complete the tranquil setting.
