Quilting in the Age of the Pandemic
A Project from The MICA Quilt Raffle Group

The MICA Quilt Raffle Group originated at Maryland Institute College of Art (MICA) Fiber Department in 2015 as a gathering of students, faculty and staff working together weekly to construct a quilt to raffle. The quilts from those first raffles went to support student scholarships at MICA.

Since 2015 the number of participants, teachers and collaborators has grown, as well as the project’s creative quilt work, and proceeds from their auctioned quilts have benefitted numerous organizations.

The Covid-19 Pandemic forced the group to work remotely. Through their determination to continue creative work as a group, they found alternative, unique and inspiring ways to work collaboratively.

The Raffle Quilt Project group continues to meet regularly, and provides an online resource for artists and students working in the fiber arts.
