Symposium Report #2- Purse-onality Challenge

At the last few shows that Capital Quilters' Guild has hosted, Roberta Morgan has organized a fun challenge to raise money for charity. We've done Artful Bras and Boxers. This year's challenge is called "Purse-onality," and the challenge was to make a purse out of an usual object. During the quilt show last weekend, viewers could bid on the purses in a silent auction. The designated charity this year is Interact, an organization to prevent spouse abuse. We raised several hundred dollars for Interact through this entertaining challenge. The purses were not listed in the show catalog, so I do not remember all the names of the bags and their makers. Roberta Morgan made quite a few, including this lady's face sticking out like a figurehead, and the decoupage box purses.
