It was Silent Auction Night at Blue Ridge Quilters. There was a pretty good selection of items on which to bid and the bidding got heated on a few; very few had to be truly auctioned at the close of the evening. In addition to the auction tables, there were books, magazines and fabrics for instant purchase and folks loaded up. See pictures of the shoppers.
The programs for the rest of the year sound interesting. I am looking forward to September, when Kathy Woods will give a talk on Quilters Ergonomics, something that applies to every one of us. For October, we are to bring an orphan block along with coordinating fabrics, cutter and cutting board, etc. for an Orphan Block Party. For November, you may want to use one of those Orphan Blocks to participate in “Quilting Troubleshooting,” or “What Was I Thinking?” Of course December is party month with fabric exchange and snacks.
The Tea Cup Challenge parcels were opened and the contents revealed. Each of the table runners was unique and beautifully done in colors to coordinate with the teacup offered. However, two of the participants were absent and their parcels will be saved unopened for next month.
