The Michiana Mennonite Relief Sale was held yesterday and blue Stars Around the Garden was auctioned in the quilt auction. She brought $3000!!!! What a sense of gratification, even the farmer was impressed!
I am thankful that I could play a part in raising funds to be used in various programs for MCC.
The pattern for Stars Around the Garden is here.
I won't have a quilt for the auction next year since Welsh Beauty is in the frame. She's going to take all winter to hand quilt. I do have an idea running through my mind for the sale in 2 years . . . of course another blue & white quilt.
OH MY GOODNESS!! I gasped when I saw that number! Gretchen - your generosity is amazing. Congratulations!
It is worth every penny of this and more. I'm happy that someone else appreciated your work
Such a beautiful quilt and a generous gift to the auction. I’m not surprised it sold for so much money.
How awesome for you... I bet your hubby was impressed! You did great on this quilt! Can't wait to see what you donate in 2 years time too !!! Happy Stitching on Welch Beauty!
that is so great for the quilt to auction at that price - that is really great.
I'm thankful 2 people really wanted this quilt, the bidding went up fast! I have no idea who bought the quilt, the purchaser was an online bidder.
The new owner has an incredible quilt and worth every single penny. Congrats!
Congratulations and it's worth every penny! Glad to know that your work is valued.
WOW! You must be so thrilled that it was appraised as the masterpiece it is. Someone knows the time and energy you put into your quilts. Congrats! ;^)
Congratulations Gretchen. You put a lot of effort in this quilt and it shows. You must be on cloud 9 to have the quilt bring in so much money for the Auction.
That's a fantastic amount to raise for your quilt, but it such a beauty I'm not surprised. Congratulations!
Oh how wonderful! Congratulations! It's a beauty!
You are awesome! This is an astounding amount to raise, and your beautiful quilt is totally worth it! How proud you must be! Well done, friend! :)
Beautiful quilt, and glad it raised so much! I love blue and white quilts! Happy stitching, and hope you have a great week!
What a wonderful auction price to help others. Your work is beautiful and somebody definitely appreciated it. Enjoy your stitching!
This is just wonderful, congratulations to you for creating this masterpiece. MCC is such a worthy cause.
Congratulations on your quilt receiving a generous amount for a worthwhile charity!
Congratulations! Gretchen, what a great feeling this is for you!
I've just been over to the website and looked at every single quilt. Most of them sold for what I thought were 'worthwhile' prices - perhaps not enough to cover the true cost of materials and labour but sufficient for the quiltmakers to feel that their efforts were acknowledged and appreciated. This is so pleasing. It upsets me when handmade craft pieces are auctioned for ridiculously small prices. Congratulations on having your work attract such a price. I hope that it will become a family heirloom for whoever purchased it.
I followed the auction results just to see what your beautiful quilt sold for. The price was well deserved and the buyer is fortunate to have such a beautiful quilt.
That is amazing!!!! Congratulations! Your quilt is amazingly beautiful and worth every penny. I just went back and reread the post where you finished this quilt and enjoyed seeing your process. How wonderful for this relief fund auction to benefit from your generous donation of this beautiful quilt ... <3 Pat
