Quilt for a Cause

Austin Umbdenstock, an eighth grade student at St. John the Baptist Catholic School, teamed up with his grandmother, Maggie Ratz (and her friends, the St. John’s quilters), to make this beautiful deer inspired quilt as his confirmation service project. Area resident Derrick DeWilde recently had a tragic hunting accident and Umbdenstock shares DeWilde’s passion for hunting, so he wanted to do something to help the DeWilde family. For his service project, Umbdenstock will be raffling off the quilt with proceeds going to the DeWilde family.
