In addition, the Westfield Quilt Show will feature a beautiful quilt to be raffled off that will benefit the guild and their programs. This stunning quilt (pictured in this article) is called "Bella Bella," and was paper pieced by many members of the guild, and will fit a queen-size bed, or would look beautiful hung on a wall. Tickets for the raffle quilt are $1 each, or six for $5. They may be purchased at the show in August, and can also be purchased ahead of time at the Westfield First Fridays, at the Main Street shops, on August 1st and September 5th.
