Thank you for all your wonderful comments and congratulations! I wish all of our new blog friends could have been there. And you too Mary! We missed You!
Thank you also for coming to the show yesterday, I saw so many of my quilt friends. I even managed a quick lunch with Jill, Susan and Kathie of Inspired by Antique Quilts, which was a treat.
I'm looking forward to posting photos of the amazing quilts, but today is the last day, so I want to give everyone a chance to see the show fresh.
The Mini-auction was wonderful. Kim and I had a great time running the tables and auctions. We had many nice women helping us, thank you all!
The best of the day? The door prizes. We have two funny, talented and generous women who run the door prize table. Tickets are 2 for $1.00 and the chance of winning is probably 80% or higher. You pick out 2 slips of paper, if you get an X, you get lotion, a pattern, or a scrap bag. If you get a number, you win the corresponding prize.
They had over 750 numbered prizes. Addicted? Oh, yes. There was some concern that I may need a sponsor and program to get "off" the door prizes.
Here is what I won: (I also won 2 minis, and Kim gave me the half square triangle one, which she made and won).
The item in the gray bag is a Christmas gift for my daughter that I was trying desperately to win and ended up trading 3 fabric bundles and a bag for. I missed Kaffe's Museum Book, the woman in front of me won while I waited my turn....
Here is what I purchased:
The bad news; the door prizes sold out last night. The good news; today will be a drug free quilt show day, whew.....
