2014 PVQA Quilt Show
|back of Pup Art auction quilt|
Helping with the Live Quilt Auction on Sunday was fun and nerve racking - especially when Pup Art came up on the block, #60 out of 66. It was a hit with an entertaining bout of bids flying back and forth. I was able to snap a better shot of the back before it went on display.
Three of my quilts were displayed. I borrowed back Ring Around the Briar Rosies from my granddaughter and the Carpenters Block quilt from my hubby (and our dogs). Thank goodness those two washed up and de-furred just fine. xPlus came straight from the show at our LQS. Now that it's home we'll have it on our bed.
Our MQG also donated a raffle basket - you can see a peak of the Echino clutch I made. I stitched our new logo onto the fabric ribbon - isn't it adorable?
Some years I drive away with a trunk full of fabric scraps from the Bargain Garden (it's sold for cheap by the pound). This year I managed one small half full bag and am happy for that considering my sewing room has become a cluttered mess.
This gem of a pattern had the original "four color iron-on transfers" inside. I can't imagine who thought of putting Wesson Oil, Hunt's Catchup and Canada Dry Soda logos on a jumpsuit - a better question might be, why?
I was baffled. So I bought it.
