This year, for my quilting guild, I have been chairman of our annual "Opportunity Quilt". This is a raffle quilt in plain English, but California forbids raffle ticket sales, so we call it a "donation" ticket. Taking over a year to make, it's a beautiful quilt, entitled "Emma's Courtyard", hand-appliqued, hand-quilted and designed by Jo Morton, a professional designer. She has even posted a photograph of it on her web site. We have permission from her to offer it as a fund raiser for our non-profit organization. The applique group enjoyed constructing it, but somehow the 150 or so members of the guild can barely help the 8 of us market it, even though all of the proceeds will go to the guild's general fund. It's next appearance is at the county fair in Red Bluff for four days and we can't fill shifts to sell the tickets. I'm really discouraged with their lack of interest. Does anyone else feel like they are going it alone on these guild projects? Sigh.
POST EDIT: Here's the Opportunity Quilt in question.
