Guild Auction

Our guild had it's annual "Beat the February Blues" Auction this week.  Members donated unwanted fabrics, kits, books, magazines and an assortment of craft-related items.

This year our theme was to come dressed up as a quilt block or quilt, so we saw many people wearing their UFO's and stray blocks!  I dressed as Overall Bill.  Sandi dressed up in Irish Greens and had a paper chain around her neck, and Shelley was a Crazy Quilt from the 60's!  It was alot of fun!

Donna was the auctioneer, and she always does a great job of it, squeezing every last dollar out of the bidding quilters!  There is always friendly rivalry  going on!

I got be be "Vanna" again this year, parading around the lovely and not-so-lovely fabrics up for auction. 

Now to start setting aside things for next year's auction!
