Danville, VA - On Wednesday out at the Schoolfield Museum in Danville they raffled off a hand stitched full size Dan River Mills quilt just in time for the Fourth of July.

Two sisters, Carol and Dot Handy, worked hard to make the quilt which has more than 2,000 swatches of Dan River Fabric.

They sold more than 600 tickets in the quilt raffle and Wednesday at noon they announced the winner: Dana Reagan.

"I can buy multiple tickets for something and that person who bought one ticket will win and I will not, so I really didn't think even buying 40 tickets, I really didn't think I would win, I wanted to win but I didn't think I would win," said Dana Reagan, who won the raffle.

"It was 11 months and probably close to 700 hundred hours at least in the making," said Carol Handy.

The Museum operates on donations and all proceeds from the quilt raffle will go towards the Schoolfield Preservation foundation.
