The annual Small Quilt Auction held by the Nimble Thimbles has become a wonderful tradition.
If your guild is looking for a fund raiser, this event is a winner.
Our guild is medium in size with around 60 members.
Granted, not everyone comes to each meeting, but we had good representation for the auction.
41 quilts/small projects were donated this year.
Family and guests were invited to join us.
Below is a small sampling of some of the generous items donated.
There is a lot of talent shared within our guild!
Bev made this checkerboard quilt, complete with checkers inserted in the bottom pocket.
Wouldn't this make a great gift?
Even though we live in Arizona, many of the guild members are really into snowmen.
And Pat Roche's Modern Amish Quilt received the highest bid.
There was a lot of battling and competition going on with waving of bid paddles, but that is half the fun!
You had to be especially careful not to sneeze or rub your nose, or you would be included in the bid :)
Many thanks to all who donated their time and talents,
including the Auctioneers, Auction Committee and all who helped make the evening a success!
