Silent Auction Bounty

21 napkins, small table cloth, remnants
8 1/2 yards of fabric for backings
January 2017
I recently went to the Winter Carnival Quilt Show and bid on several items in the silent auction. My bids on three items were successful.

One bag contained 21 large napkins (17" square), a card table sized cover and some remnants. The napkins are large enough to make blocks for a QOV and the cloth and remnant can be used for blocks or borders.
two lengths of yardage for QOV backing
Two other successful bids were on yardage that I'll use for backings and/or presentation cases.

Total cost for these items - $26.00


  1. Nice haul!! Those will be fabulous in QOV's.

  2. Excellent purchase! You got a bargain.

  3. Lucky you! And lucky QOV who receive these quilts. So are the other colors in your stash getting jealous?

  4. Congrats! There are pretty fabrics in the napkins. Have fun!

  5. Wow! That's quite a bargain. Those fabrics will be perfect in your QOV
    quilts won't they? It'll be fun to see what you do with them.
    Blessings, Betsy

  6. Good way to bid and keep costs down. Love the variety and still they are the same theme. They will be wonderful QOV finishes!

  7. Wow, you made a haul! Beautiful pieces that will all look great in quilts. You are super shopper--or bidder!

  8. What a great bargain -- and for a good cause!
