Heritage Days Quilt Auction

Saturday, October 2, is the day that Capital Quilters Guild is holding a Quilt Auction and Raffle at the farmhouse at Historic Oak View Park, Carya Drive, Raleigh, (off Poole Road).  Boutique and Auction registration start at 10 am, Auction starts at 2 pm.

Here is our raffle quilt, Lil Orphan Annie.  It is hand-quilted and appliqued.

You can see some of the hand-made donated quilts for sale at the auction on my blog post here.

Our charity partner again this year is Military Missions in Action.  This group is a non-profit that helps wounded veterans and their families in North Carolina.  They are completely funded by donations and the members are all volunteers.  Their services include household improvements and home maintenance that encourage independent living for disabled veterans.

The boutique has over 350 hand-made items for sale.  I turned in a whole bag full of quilted, painted, bejeweled bookmarks.

This group has purple foil on red and blue hand-dyed fabric.

In this group, the blue and copper are painted, foiled batting.

 This group has hand-painted fabric with embellished fibers and Swarovski crystals.

It was fun to work on these colorful projects while North Carolina was being deluged with rain all week.  The weekend is supposed to be very nice, however, and I saw a beautiful rainbow tonight.
