The winner of the Statehood Quilt raffle will be announced at the flag-raising ceremony at the Juneau-Douglas Museum on July 4.
The Statehood Quilt, which is currently on display at the Juneau Arts and Culture Center, features squares done by 24 Juneau residents representing Southeast Alaska's wildlife, flowers and landmarks.
There are squares featuring Native designs, bears, the Alaska state capitol and even one that reads PFD with little pink hearts around it.
The quilt cornerstones are made from the 50th Statehood pattern designed by Judy Dafoe Hopkins, Juneau's well-known, published quilt designer. And the popular Alaskan blueberry fabric has been used for the quilt backing.
Tickets for the raffle are still available at Hearthside Books and Rain Tree Quilting for $10 each or $25 for three. There are only 600 tickets for the raffle, which will include other prizes such as an ivory bracelet and 50th Statehood Commemorative Medallion.
