Opportunity Quilt was won by Carla Formel's sister-in-law.  She recieved it in the mail on Thursday and loves it.  Carla's husband bought some tickets and wanted to do something nice for his sister, who is a very giving person, so he put her name on a number of tickets.  They were talking about how neat it would be if she won the quilt and then Judy called with the news she had won it.
