2022 Quiltcon Charity Raffle - The Divide
Pictured - left, Robyn Passig, chairperson of the Quilt Show Committee and right, the winner of the raffle, Megan Buttery.
The winner of our raffle quilt, The Divide, is Megan Buttery. The proceeds of the raffle ($947) was donated to the St. Louis Area Foodbank.
The quilt was a collaborative effort of the Guild and was displayed at the 2022 Quiltcon exhibition hosted by The Modern Quilt Guild in Phoenix, Arizona in February, 2022.
There are so many things that divide us. The urban vs. rural divide in Missouri and racial divisions in St. Louis are real issues that face our guild members. This quilt attempts to show these divides through color, and the zigzag lines down the middle of the quilt are loosely based on a map showing the racial demographics of North St. Louis County. As you look at this quilt, take a moment to think about what separates you from other people or groups and how you can bridge that gap, build understanding and love, and help move us toward a better future.
