2013 "Eureka-Susanna" Quilt Raffle



This year, we are honored to have a quilt designed especially for the Death Valley ‘49ers by award-winning quilter Charlotte R. Freeman of Ridgecrest, California.


The 55” x 55” Eureka – Susanna quilt was handmade, machine appliqued and machine quilted. The quilt was inspired by the work of a well-known western artist, Barbara Meikle of Santa Fe, NM.


This year’s quilt raffle will benefit the Death Valley ‘49ers Scholarship Program. The winning ticket will be drawn on stage just before the Desert Night Music program on Saturday night, November 9th.


You do not need to be present to win.

Tickets will be on sale at the membership booths throughout the Encampment.
Tickets are $1.00 each or 6 for $5.00.
