81 - UMCI Family Picnic Raffle Quilt

Dad's company is such a family oriented company.  They have adorable events that focus on fun for the kids.  The summer picnic always has several basket give-a-ways that get everyone excited.  Last year Kev won the cooler and microbrew basket :)  This year one of the baskets will feature a Happy Scrappy Picnic Quilt.  I'm sure the winner will be excited!

UPDATE:  Ok, so this is sort of embarrassing and yet also soooo sweet and tossed with a big dose of serendipity... At the picnic, on the raffle table, the quilt was all "basketed & cellophaned & tied with a bow & labeled donated by Wayne H."     But Dad and Kev & I  and Andrew all knew we wanted our dear UMCI Receptionist, Mary, to win it.  So we loaded our 3 raffle tickets into the bucket to add to Mary's chances.  That gave Mary a 4-ticket-chance to win!   Low and behold... Dad's ticket is drawn.  And, because Mary had to leave early, Dad had to go up and claim his own donation!  Awkward!  But the next day, when Mary found the quilt on her desk chair... PRECIOUS!
