Twilight Auction Item - Wonderful White Oaks Quilt, created by Yew Dell volunteer, Jacquelyn McGrail.

For those who have loved the handmade quilts by talented Yew Dell volunteer, Jacquelyn McGrail, you will not want to miss this year's Wonderful White Oak Quilt. It depicts leaves from 5 species in the white oak group, arranged in diagonal rows. The leaves were traced from live specimens, or from photographs, then enlarged and somewhat simplified. The background is the sky, and the quilting represents the breezes and air currents. This lovingly made piece of fine art would grace any person's home. This quilt is so good, our ED Paul Cappiello could identify the types of oaks by the quilt pieces!

The Twilight auction closes tomorrow night at 11:59 pm. We have several garden-centric items available. Thank you to our wonderful in-kind donors for providing such unique items and experiences!
