Quilting Accolades

My quilting guild held an auction this month, and I thought a miniature quilt might be a good item to donate. It is pictured here, and measured 8″ by 9″. My husband and I were celebrating our anniversary that night, so we stopped in to see how the auction was going. Much to my amazement, this little quilt racked up $220 in bids, and was the most expensive item auctioned! All I could think was “Wow!” I never imagined it would bring so much. Some people think I’m crazy for making such little quilts, but they sure take a lot less fabric, and I get quite a sense of accomplishment when I’m done. I’ve also been wrestling with machine quilting a queen size quilt for a wedding gift, and I was just vastly relieved when it was done. Just thought I’d tell you what the quilter’s been up to!
