For 40 years, Bodega quilters have been making gorgeous quilts, one every year, to raffle off to support worthy local causes. For many of those years the Bodega Fire Department has been the recipient of the Bodega Quilt Raffle proceeds.
This year, Bodega Land Trust has been honored in memory of the passing of two of their cherished leaders in the last two years, Sandy Sharp (2019) and Don Sherer (2020). Proceeds will go to BLTand the Bodega Volunteer Fire Department.
Because of this the 40th Bodega Quilt is very special and very beautiful. You see below the poster made up of the individual pieces before being assembled into the quilt.
Go to the eNotes section of this Website and read the stories about the quilt and its individual pieces.

If you do this, we would appreciate your donation of $20 or more and for every $20 donation, you will receive 24 chances to win this beautiful Bodega Quilt.

When we see land as a community to which we belong, we may begin to use it with love and respect.
~Aldo Leopold 1886-1948
Bodega Land Trust was established in 1992 by a small group of ranchers who, like Aldo Leopold, saw the realization of community in a shared love of the land. As new technologies increasingly influence the pace and patterns of our daily lives, Bodega Land Trust helps anchor us to a physical place – engaging us with the land and its natural and agricultural systems. From its origins in the town of Bodega, the Trust has focused its efforts on protecting the local area roughly defined by the Sonoma Coast from Jenner to the Estero Americano and the watersheds of Salmon Creek and Dutch Bill Creek, a tributary of the Russian River.
