What you can do before September 24th :
Mystery Quilt Project – Interested in giving this a try? You should participate in the Fabric Swap.
Fabric Swap – Prepare 7 bags (plastic sandwich bags work great) with six 2 1/2” strips (full strips)—of floral fabrics. Each bag does not need to have the same fabrics, just 6 different ones in each bag. So this is a great way to use up leftovers! Quilt Shop Quality fabric please. Place these plastic bags in a small shopping bag with handles and your name clearly marked on the outside. Drop this off at Quilts & Treasures by September 25. On Saturday, you will receive 7 different plastic bags in your shopping bag containing hopefully 42 different fabrics. (Duplications do happen!! But it will really be okay!)
Block Auction – Ever made a quilt block and then decided you didn’t like it or changed the fabrics in it? Ever made 13 blocks when you only had to make 12? Search through your unfinished projects and find these loners. Or make some interesting blocks specifically for this auction. What fun we have auctioning them off! Please drop off blocks by September 23. It helps us to have them organized and ready to go!!
Silent Auction – This year any quilt tops or finished quilts donated will be on display the week before the Quilt For A Cure Day. They will be in a Silent Auction. Current bid price will be posted by each quilt. To make a bid, go to the front desk. ALL proceeds will be donated. Bidding increments of $1.00. Why not make a few blocks of your favorite pattern and finish them into a wall hanging to donate? Please deliver these to the store by Sept 16th .
Tell your friends all about this. See if they want to join you for a fun and worthwhile day!!!
