American Quilt Study Group Auction

Charm Quilt by Dawn Cook Ronningen

Pieced from 342 reproduction prints

In the last post I mentioned the silent auction at the
annual AQSG seminar. We also do a live auction.


Julie Silber is our auctioneer

ably assisted by the Juliettes,
dressed this year as Cheesettes 
(Green Bay Packer fans.)

Highlights of the donated auction items included
Dawn's small hexagon quilt at the top of the page. Members make
quilts for the auction and donate antiques from
their collections.

Sometimes members re-donate items
they bought at previous auctions, such as Hazel
Carter's mini, sold first in 1998




The auction committee chooses the best of
the donations for the live auction.

Another highlight was this stuffed-work Lily quilt date-inscribed 1856.


It was a little worn but quite a document


donated by Kathy Metelica Cray of Grafton Village Quilts


Bobbi Finley donated this North Carolina  Virginia top.


Even if you don't attend the seminar you can
donate items to benefit AQSG.

Quilt related items are welcome too.
 I donated this watercolor I did last year.
