This past Friday and Saturday our quilt guild had it's big quilt show. I volunteered for a few hours on Saturday at the Mini Quilts Silent Auction. There were about 120 quilts each day and this is how the Saturday display looked when I got there.
Fifteen minutes before the end of the auction, people started checking their bids to make sure they would get the quilts they wanted.
One minute before the end of the auction the last minute scramble to make final bids.
The bids were lower this year undoubtedly because of the poor economy, but the silent auction is still one of the best fund raisers for our guild.
