Crazy Quilt Retreat part 2 Saturday

Saturday was the day that I taught my Fantasea Reef wallhanging class. Everyone seemed to enjoy the project, and I sure enjoyed teaching the class.

Saturday evening was the time for the autions which bennefit the American Cancer Society, and breast cancer reseach. The auctions also provide funds for scholarships to the next Crazy Quilt Retreat. This year there were also several special quilts made in honor of our friend Dee, who passed away from cancer after attending last year's retreat. Dee's quilts were put together by Kate Hollifield.

Another quilt for Dee (above)and the lable added by Kate.

A few of the beautiful auction items....

In addition to the traditional style live auction, there is a silent auction. Bids are written on slips of paper and put into paper bags. High bidder wins the item.

  1. It looks like you all had a fabulous time at your Retreat! I love all the CQ pictures you posted - beautiful works of art!

    What a surprise to log on here and see a picture of a friend of mine! (I'm in MA) Alex is in a couple pictures and it was nice to see her again through your pictures.
