Guild Silent Auction

Every year my quilt guild, Faithful Circle Quilters, in Columbia, MD, has a silent auction to raise money for the Thansgiving baskets for the needy given by the church where we meet. I wasn’t going to go this year because I hadn’t gotten anything ready to sell and didn’t want to bring anything home.

This was tempting:


One member made up a raffle basket with 120 fat quarters. You had to be present to win. I ended up going and bought some tickets. it raised $400. I figured if I won, that would take care of my Sew and Tell group birthday gifts for next year. I didn’t win. The winner was the teenage daughter of a member. Now she has a stash.

One of our members made this beautiful cake.


Unfortunately, I didn’t come home empty handed. I bought what purported to be the kits for this BOM that was offered at our local shop some years ago. I hope I have all the patterns (wonder where they might be?) because this is not a complete set. There is fabric for some of the blocks but not all.


I also picked up this small Delft plate:

    Hint: You have a friend that owns the patterns to that BOM quilt … if she can find them. 🙂

      I thought of that but I knew you wouldn’t know where your are either. By the time I’m ready to do it, one of us will have found them, maybe.
