There were two speakers , Carol Ann Sinnreich and Elsie Campbell www.elsiecampbell.com . Unfortunately I didn't get a good picture of them.
Carol is a designer and textile artist. She brought the two quilts you can barely see in the photo. She shared some insights as to the design and completion of the final project, also some organizational tips.
Elsie spoke on Renovations and Innovations. She showed a selection of her scrap quilts and also a slide presentation of her quilts, friends quilts and from the International Quilt Study Collection.
Throughout the day numbers were called for door prizes. Thanks to the many quilt shops who donated.
Last, but not least were the mini quilts donated by various members for a silent auction.
The 4 with the highest bids went to the same lady for $60 each. Can you guess which ones?
the 7 tulips in the lower right corner
the floral vine in the lower right corner. This was gorgeous - the picture doesn't do it justice.
the flower with the butterfly, top left corner
Cant remember for sure which the fourth one was, do you know? I think the lavender and green in the top left corner.
Don't these pictures inspire you to make a mini quilt?
These two were my favorites, but, no, they didn't get the highest bid.
Next year, see you in Mesquite!
