The Bowen Center for the Arts has officially announced this year’s winner of the center’s annual quilt raffle. 

This year’s winner is Carin Ittner, the art center announced in a press release. Ittner won the raffle quilt, which was handmade by over 45 quilters from the Heart in Hand Quilt Guild. 

“Carin Ittner of Dawsonville is now the proud owner of a beautiful queen/king size quilt with a unique hand-sewn border applique and designer Kaffe Fausett fabric titled Shoo Fly Garden,” the release said. 

Ittnner is also a member of the Quilt Guild. Each year, members of the guild produce a quilt to raffle off, and proceeds from the raffle benefit the Bowen. They are currently hard at work creating the 2023 raffle quilt, which should be announced sometime in the late spring, as well as planning workshops to create projects for several local outreaches they participate in.
