Her husband Donald Kraus, a former Marine, printed up 500 tickets. Each ticket costs $10.
"I finished it a month and a half ago, just in time," Kraus said. "I did enter it in the Will County Fair. It came in third in the quilting division."
In the three years since she's begun quilting, Cheryl's completed five quilts, including the patriotic quilt and a very large quilt Cheryl entered in the Kankakee Fair. That large quilt won first place, she said.
"It's a nice thing to do," Cheryl said of quilting. "I was a voracious reader, but after while you think, 'Let's have something else to do.' I really enjoy having a finished product when I'm done."
