Cranberry Country Quilters donate quilt
 
The Cranberry Country Quilters designed, crafted and donated a queen-sized quilt to Trees For Tomorrow to be used as a Forest Fest raffle prize.
 
The quilt, named “Anniversary Trees” in honor of Trees For Tomorrow’s 70th anniversary this year, took an estimated 200 hours to complete and involved all of the group’s nearly 25 members, said Michele Vinovich.
 
Vinovich, created both the design and name for the quilt. Other Cranberry Country Quilters members contributed by making the quilt blocks.
 
Lisa Arndt of Lisa’s Creative Quilting in Eagle River, machine-quilted “Anniversary Trees.”
 
The quilt is one of five prizes that will be raffled during Forest Fest at Trees For Tomorrow on Aug. 2.
