Max Klindt of Avoca, Iowa was the lucky winner of the 2010 Quilt Raffle at Carstens Farm.
To the right is a picture of Max and his daughter pointing to the block that Max's wife, Phyllis, donated. Sadly, Phyllis recently passed away, so this quilt had very special meaning to Max and his family.

This was the second year for the Quilt Raffle, and again, it drew a lot of attention. Countless hours go into this project by the women who donate the blocks and by Jan Hursey and Marilyn Evans who organize this project, collect the blocks, piece the blocks together and then hand-quilt it. Many thanks to them.
