The Winona Area Quilters Guild has generously made another beautiful queen-sized quilt for the Winona County Historical Society to raffle off. This year’s quilt is called “Orion Star” and made of Batik fabric in colors reminiscent of the northern lights featuring a star design. It was machine-quilted by WCHS member and volunteer, Mary Nelson.
