The ‘$520 Pledge Challenge’ Raffle If you increase your pledge by $520 this year ($10 a week), you could win this gorgeous hand-made quilt generously donated by Alane Wallis as the ‘$520 Challenge’ raffle prize! This quilt was handmade by First Parish member, Alane Wallis, and is named the Farm Girl. She worked on it for a year at The Cambridge Quilt Shop during their ‘Block of the Month’ events. The shop provided the pattern, the fabric, guidance. and the opportunity to commune with other quilters. Alane particularly likes the quality of the fabric and the challenge of piecing each block. Thank you Alane!
