Thanks to everybody who came out yesterday to the 23rd annual benefit auction in support of the Clinic For Special Children! As always, it was an amazing day for a wonderful cause. Hope to see you again next year on the third Saturday of September!

    as a lover of quilts and fabric, I am just curious. What was the average winning bid for these beautiful works of art? The detail and workmanship looks awesome.

    So pleased the special auction went well.

  3. These quilts are spectacular, and I am so sorry that I wasn’t able to make this event. I’ll need to make sure it’s on my calendar for next year. Thanks for touching base with me though.

    I love the quilts. I’ve always wanted a quilt that was handmade by the Amish or mennonite’s. The postage stamp quilt is my favorite but I like the first quilt as well.

    How much do the quilts go for at auction? I imagine that they’re expensive.
