Every year a group of talented Villagers gather together to design and create a beautiful hand-crafted quilt. The quilt is new and different every year and is designed with a theme depicting a historical event or place. A raffle is held each year to award the quilt and to raise funds for historic preservation and scholarships. Raffle tickets for the quilt are available at the House Tour. Winners need not be present to win.
The 2016 Villagers Quilt “Cycle-Site-See” draws attention to the Coral Gables Museum Bike Tours offered by the Coral Gables Museum and Bike Walk Coral Gables. The tours held on the third Sunday of every month, promote a culture that puts biking and walking into people’s daily lives, allowing participants to sightsee in an environmentally friendly way while experiencing history.
