This antique quilt was donated to the Friends of the Point Roberts Library and is being raffled off as the newest fundraiser for the new library building fund. The six-block “crazy quilt” with a purple satin border is decorated with flowers, animals and figures over an elaborate sampler of different appliquéd fans. The blocks in the quilt were probably made in the late 19th century, but were assembled into the finished quilt in the 1970s. “It’s in exceptional condition for its age,” said librarian Rose Momsen, who is coordinating the sale of the tickets. Tickets are $5 each or five tickets for $20.
