RFQFA's first project is a "Celebration" quilt in honor of Rotary International's 100th Birthday.  The quilt will be on display at the 2005 International Convention in Chicago and will be used to raise money for the Rotary Foundation. 

Members submitted 9 inch quilt blocks depicting their creative rendition of "Celebration".  The blocks will be pieced together along the quilt border with sashing.  This quilt will be in a Medallion design.  In the center will be an illustration of the Chicago skyline by Phyllis Giersch.  Keep watching for progress updates.
