Dawn of Collector with a Needle, went this year and sent me these photos of the little quilt I made from the AQSG c1825 fabric line. I mentioned it in this post here . (Oh my, aren't you proud of me! I finally figured out how to link a specific post - I'm a slow learner!)
It looks like there were some great quilts in this little challenge! I wish I had been there to see them all. I got an e-mail from Lisa Erlandson (AQSG President) that mine had won third place in the contest. Funny, since I had forgotten it was a contest. I was thinking it was like the "quilt study" exhibits which I have participated in before. But, then my mind isn't what it used to be.
But... the best news came from Pam Weeks this morning. I had told Lisa that if it wasn't too much of a hassle to take it down on Saturday night, that they could auction it off at the live auction (with auctioneer extraordinaire, Julie Silber). Pam said they made $270.00 on it. Whoopie! If you can't read the description card, here's what it says:
Title: A Means of Support
There are many ways each of us can support the efforts of AQSG. We can host local study groups, we can attend the annual seminar, we can donate items to the auction, or we can simply send cash. Since I have done all of the above before, I decided one more way to support this wonderful organization is to make a quilt from the new c1825 fabric line. I chose a strippy setting with appliqued hexagons as I felt that would best represent the early 19th century. It is hand appliqued and hand quilted with a split wool batt.
So, I hope you all get a chance to attend one day. 2016 will be in Arizona and 2017 will be in Manchester, NH. Since I don't have to fly I will definitely be attending. Can't wait!
And, I do hope to be back on the Blogging track! What a whirlwind summer!
