    Thank you everyone. As a somewhat nooby at quilting, your kind words and seeing your creations inspire me to improve.

    That turned out great! I hope it did well at the auction. This pattern is on my list, but the list is so long...

    Results of fundraiser...

    Silent auction this weekend wasn't as successful as hoped. This fundraiser was a small event, with only about 70 people in attendance. And it wasn't for a charitable organization, but was instead a social-hobby club raising money for the club, so I really didn't have high expectations to begin with.

    My quilt had a minimum bid of $50, and only one person bid on it. Unfortunetly she didn't read the fine print and only bid $5.00. The other items didn't have minimum bids and even though they were beautiful pieces of artwork worth over $100 each, the highest sale was $20. So the auction didn't raise much money.

    However, the raffles (and there were quite a few going on) did raise alot of money for the event, so it wasn't a matter of people not willing to part with their monies, it was a matter of priorities (and tastes) of where to "invest" their contributions, which I can certainly understand.

    End result, the quilt was returned to me, and I made a small donation to the club anyway. Another club that I belong to will be having an event later in the year, and has raffles to raise money for a charitable organization that helps wounded servicemen and women, and their families. So I will most likely donate it for that raffle instead. This may be petty, but if the quilt only raises a few dollars, I would rather see that monies go to a worthy cause than to a club (even one that I belong to).
