Logo Quilt Raffle

The bicentennial logo designed by Helmut Kunst for the Clifford Township Bicentennial Celebration is beautiful, detailed and thoughtful. Many have admired it as a work of art. It comes as no surprise that two groups have decided to have the logo adorn their quilts: the Clifford Baptist Church and the Clifford Township Supervisors.

The queen-size, tea dyed cotton quilt top is totally hand stitched by members and friends of the church. The logo is in the center; each corner of the quilt has a different block design stitched in it: Pennsylvania, Pennsylvania Pavement, Harrisburg and Pennsylvania Wheel.

The quilt sponsored by the supervisors is double-size; its design comes from intricately pieced fabrics, all hand and machine appliquéd by Adrian Crossman. The three-foot star design on the back of the quilt and the border are hand quilted.

Raffle tickets will be sold on July 1 and 2. Both quilts will be raffled off Sunday, July 2 at the firemen’s picnic grounds on Rt. 106. Proceeds will help with the bicentennial celebration expenses.

These unique quilts can be fabulously displayed on a bed or hung as wall art and will surely be a cherished inheritance.
