C&T Publishing has generously donated a spectacular art quilt featuring Van Gogh’s Bedroom to be raffled off as a fund-raising event in support of the NAMTA Foundation. Hundreds of hours went into the making of this one-of-a-kind quilt, which was created by an amazingly talented group of editors and authors from C&T Publishing. The Foundation raises money to help provide art scholarships to students and grants for art projects. This custom art quilt was C&T’s way of helping out the Foundation.

The quilt is approximately 6’ x 7’ and was developed as a slice quilt, where each contributor designed a panel that was later stitched together and quilted. Almost every panel was made from hand-painted fabric and enhanced with art materials and hand stitching. It’s a true work of
art that will make a fantastic display piece for a home or office.

The Foundation is selling raffle tickets on their web site as well as at their booth (#128) at the NAMTA show. Tickets are only $10 each and the winner will be selected on April 15th. The link to buy tickets is: www.namta.org/quilt
