Quilt Auction!

My friend Liz Broussard alerted me to the live auction of some fabulous quilts, to be held at the Quilt Guild of Greater Houston Show (at the Stafford Center) on July 12 and 13, 2013. 

"Round Peg in a Square Hole"
The quilt shown above boasts Modern blocks created and donated for the auction by the Beyond the Sunset bee, which were arranged and quilted by Liz Broussard.  (I would love to have this quilt myself!)

They are expecting over 20 quilts in the Live Auction ... including the one pictured above, plus a quilt using Kaffe Fassett fabrics, an Edyta Sitar basket quilt, a Texas quilt, a "house" quilt, an applique quilt of historical missions, and traditional quilts ... there should be something for everyone! Sizes range from throw/ lap size to bed size. 

They will also have three different services for professional quilting available for auction, so if you aren’t in the market for a quilt, you might consider getting one of your own quilt tops professionally quilted.

According to Theresa Dodson of the QGGH, they will also have a basket raffle (roughly 25-30), which you need not be present to win. Some raffles will include fabric, some may be holiday items, and even possibly a sewing machine (to be discovered)!

Make your plans to be there, see the wonderful show that they always exhibit, and scarf up on the goodies!
