An Enjoyable Afternoon Cont'd

Carol Miller is the one in the white skirt receiving honors for "Her Dream"

These are the different locations where all the quilts will be auctioned. As you can see it goes from coast to coast...Victoria British Columbia, Kamloops British Columbia, Stratford Ontario, Toronto Ontario, and Halifax Nova Scotia.

This particular quilt caught my eye. It is all "yo-yo's"
I have been making yo-yo's since 1971!!!! I now have over 2000 and am working on putting them together in a quilt! stay tuned ;-}

Isn't this one pretty.It's called a stack and wack, and the blocks are all different depending on how you cut the fabric... Fascinating.

Love the butterflies...... Very old design.

A lot of work in this one for sure!

Here's Karen , one of "The Mellows" admiring the work. Karen has a long arm quilting business.

I thought this one really hit the nail on the head with the breast cancer logo.. Bet it brings in a lot of money.
I might add, The Mellow Yellow quilt is not in this group of quilts. Ours is in a group of quilts on tour right now thanks to the Lazy Boy Furniture company. They are a big supporter and always donate a lazyboy chair as one of the door prizes at the Auction. Once the tour is over it will be located at Cassaloma in Toronto, Ontario, Canada to be auctioned there. There are different locations of auctions and one of the pictures tells that story..
Hope you enjoyed seeing the quilts.
