Festival of the Cranes Quilt

You could win this beautiful, handcrafted Festival of the Cranes Quilt, just in time for the holidays, and valued at $1,000!
This Bosque del Apache themed quilt is an original design by the Fiber Arts Guild of Socorro County, honoring the refuge in all seasons. The border on the front side features a quilt pattern known as “flying geese.” The artwork from 2017 Festival of the Cranes is featured in the top left and bottom right corners. Fabrics used in the quilt show landscapes, lightning, clouds, and sunny skies. The designs in the top right and bottom left evoke the gorgeous sunrises and sunsets we enjoy at Bosque del Apache, as well as the highways and fly-ways that bring avian and human visitors to this magnificent oasis in the northern Chihuahua Desert. 
Each ticket costs $5. Ticket Sales will end on December 5 and a drawing will occur on Thursday, December 6 at Vertu Fine Art Gallery in Socorro; you need not be present to win. The winner will be announced at our Holiday Open House event on Friday, December 7th, as well as on Friends of Bosque del Apache’s Facebook page, and on our website at  Friends of Bosque del Apache will ship the quilt to any address within the contiguous United States.
