The Boutique was a Success

Last Saturday the guild I belong to, Common Threads Quilt Guild, held their 5th Annual Boutique.  And we had another successful event.

Here's a picture of the Fraternal Hall before the crowds came.

And here's a picture of the room full of people.


The guild netted over $8,000.00.  Which is better than last year so we're happy with that.

I was in charge of organizing the consignment quilts.  This are for large quilts where 20% of the sales goes to the guild and the rest to the quilt maker.  We did quite well this year.  6 quilts, one tree skirt, 3 wooden trash cans (made by my dad) and one wood cutting board (also made by my dad) and 3 potting tables (made by another members husband and neighbor).

2 of those quilts were mine.  Yea!  Just in time since in the last week and a half, I've had to have to have over $1,600 in car repairs.  These are the quilts I sold.



Other than that, I've now had time to focus on my quilts for me.  I'm almost done machine quilting  my Material Girl challenge quilt.  Very happy about that.

Heading to Pacific International Quilt Show in Santa Clara on Sunday with a few friends.  I hope I don't forget my camera.  I need some inspiration.

Thank you for looking,

Hi, I am new to your blog and enjoyed reading. Do you have the pattern info for the Santa belt-buckle pillow shown in your post of Sept. 5? Thx.

Awesome work, Barb! Isn't it nice when money comes through just at the right time?

Congratulations on such a successful event! I was there when the room was FULL of people. Oh, how I wish I had had time to do more than race through the room. I had two other things to do before noon, and company arriving at 2pm. But I made it. What a terrific event! Give yourself and your guildies a pat on the back and a rousing round of applause. Great job!!
