I blogged about Vintage Pink Churn Dash quilt back in May. I donated it to the Capital Quilter guild, to be auctioned at their Heritage Day Quilt Auction taking place October 2nd.
I was pleased and surprised to find out that it won 3rd place in the viewers' choice awards at theCapital Quilters Guild meeting last night. I knew it would be loved by someone but never expected it to win a prize!
Elizabeth Ginder, who pieced this quilt about 70 years ago, is up there smiling along with me!
The Heritage Day Auction in Raleigh, NC is a wonderful way to buy amazing quilts at great prices. The proceeds go to Military Mission in Action. This is a locally based, non-profit organization that provides housing and household improvements for disabled veterans. Last year the Capital Quilters Guild raised $11,000 for this organization by auctioning off quilts made and donated by members of the guild. I am so proud to belong to a quilting guild with so much talent, expertise and compassion.
