The quilt that keeps on giving

Written by 

Haywood Community College Day Quilting Workshop student Rikki Williams (pictured) won the Confetti Quilt that she helped construct in her class. Students made the quilt to be given away at the recent Share the Warmth Concert. Williams is sending the quilt to her son, U.S. Air Force Sergeant Zebulon Williams, who is stationed in California. He will use the quilt for a raffle to raise funds for the Wounded Warrior Project. “I bought tickets to give back to the community,” Williams said. “This quilt shared the warmth; now, it’s going to share comfort. Who knows where it will end up.” All money raised at the Share the Warmth Concert — so far more than $8,600 — went to Mountain Projects’ Heating Assistance Program.
