Last evening Catholic Charities of North Dakota held a Baskets and Bows Auction and Silent Auction to raise money for their many programs they provide for the public.There adoption, pregnancy and counseling services are phenomenal. We support this charity when we can, and our calendars were clear.
I knew they had several quilts for auction. I wasn’t able to win the Up North Quilt that had a woodsy feel, but I was lucky enough to win 3 quilted items in the silent auction.. The beautiful pinwheel quilt above is gorgeous. It is in shades of navy blue and gold and is about 63″ by 80″. I think it will be a favorite of mine for a long time to come.
This Winter Runner is about 38″ x 12″ so it can be used on the table or a side table. Love that it is double-sided so I can use it on whichever side strikes my mood. Probably will be on the snowman side more since I decorate with many snowman in my house. Why? Not sure since I really don’t like snow and cold.
Finally I came home with this Asian inspired Changing Season Quilt. It is more of a wall hanging. I plan to hang it on the wall somewhere this spring if I can find a place. Love, love, love, the colors.
If you ever have a chance to go to a charity fund-raiser, check out the handmade quilts. You may be able to get some well-made quilts at a great price while helping a worthwhile charity. Just don’t bid against me.
