I am so honored that I was asked to quilt a gorgeous group workshop quilt that placed 2nd highest bid in the show! Also a client's quilt that I quilted and she DONATED to the cause took a hefty $600 bid too. 10% of all proceeds went to a mammogram and breast health care organization called "The Rose" and 100% of all proceeds from a quilt named "Bed of Roses" went to this model program that provides services for the uninsured as well as those with insurance. The auctioneer was awesome, not only after the bidding ended at $1200 for this quilt, he started up individual donations of $100 and received another $1300 in individual contributions! The top 3 quilts brought in $1750, $1400 and $1200! Then the bids went down with several bringing in around $600 with the majority running about $300. I can't wait to hear the final tally from the live and silent auctions.
Here are a few pics from the event.
