    Hello all -

    Our church had our Fall Festival today, and we contributed a quilt for the silent auction. We also post our quilts on Facebook, and our organist has commented on several of them. When we told her we were working on a quilt for the festival, she asked about it, and told us she wanted to bid on it for her grandson.

    When we got there this morning, she had already placed a bid on the quilt, sight unseen. She ended up in a bidding war with another member, who also would have given it to her grandson. Our organist ended up with the quilt for $180, and told us she would have gone much higher. We were very pleased that it brought that much. The bidders are still friends, as you can see in the second pic. The third is her "victory" picture.

    The quilt is a Yellow Brick Road, twin size. We used most of these fabrics in Renota's quilt last year, but we had to add a few more. We knew we'd have the best chance of getting good bids with orange, even though the Vols are having a less than stellar season.

    Thanks for looking,

    Darren

    That's great!

    I got into a bidding war once. The person I was bidding against didn't realize I was buying it for her! The money went for a good cause.
