Small Quilt Auction

Today, La Plata Quilters Guild had its 10th Annual Small Quilt Benefit Auction. We raised over $13,000.00 with 126 quilts! We had a gorgeous day (as usual, I forgot my hat and my poor head got sunburned). I've been in charge of this event for nine years now, and I am always amazed at the quality of quilts donated by our guild members and others.

Some quilts are truly wonderful, and bring in lots of money for our beneficiaries, and other quilts are a bit more humble, but find a loving home. It's a really wonderful event. I have a few photos here, and more on my flickr page.

Also, check out our guild's website - there's lots of information about the auction and the rest of the guild's activities there.
