One of the best things about spending several days in one place –like my time at the Vermont Quilt Festival – is getting to know people and spend more time with them! The people really ARE the best part of it all, you know?
So many talented and dedicated quilters doing what they love in support of causes that they also love!
One such gal is Sharon Shea Perry who has taken her love of drawing and stitching and put her efforts not only toward documenting things in and around Vermont that she loves, but she is doing it with a heart with all proceeds to benefit the Franklin County Quilters Guild in Saint Albans, Vermont.
The Covered Bridges of Vermont in Redwork!
Sharon gifted me a set!
And when I said I would be happy to help promote the series on my blog to further help the Franklin County Quilters Guild, she sent me TWO sets!
The sale of each pattern set benefits the educational programs of the Franklin County Quilters Guild, St. Albans, VT. A fellow guild member, Denise Chase, and I collaborated on making a raffle quilt featuring covered bridges for the guild.
I drew all the embroidery patterns for the 12 covered bridges which were all once prominent landmarks in the county; some are still standing today.

Denise designed the quilt layout, and several more members helped make the embroidered blocks. It was easy to translate the work we already did into a pattern set which we could sell.
There are 13 patterns which are sold as a set, one each for the 12 bridges and a pattern for the quilt top.

My husband (and webmaster for the guild’s website), Scott, has included information on how to order the pattern set Here.
Seven Patterns included in the giveaway!
The pattern bundles offered up in our Give-Away include 6 of the various bridges and the finishing pattern.
Other patterns are available from the guild’s website.
What an awesome tribute to Vermont’s beautiful covered bridges!
