Pictured is this year's quilt that will be raffled at the Washington Parish Free Fair. The queen-size quilt is called "Wicker Basket Applique". The top was made by Pennsylvania Amish women and the hand quilting was done by Becky Creel. Raffle tickets are $1 each or six for $5 and may be purchased in advance from Marguerite Lipani at 839-4410. Tickets are sold during the fair on the back porch of the Sylvest Cabin.
