HAITI AUCTION QUILTS - JUNE, 2013 - PART 1

As this is March and the next Haiti Auction is in June, I think I better clear the items from the last auction off.  This is part 1 of the quilts.  Part 2 will be tomorrow and on Saturday, I will have the last of the items on - not quilts.

Good Morning Everyone,

Well, this is the first of three posts. This one and tomorrow are of Amish and Mennonite quilts from the Haiti Auction and Saturday will be of other items sold.

Marilyn, these quilts are beautiful. I am in awe at the work that goes into producing these quilts. I can sew, crochet, but have never mastered the art of quilting, I also know that I don't have the patience. Is this auction open to the public and where is it held? Thank you for sharing these quilts. Cathy in Webster

Hi Cathy,

The quilts are beautiful. I can't do that kind of work either.

Yes, the Haiti Auction is open to anyone. In fact, they want everyone to come. It is held in Penn Yann. It is usually the day before Father'd Day. It is really worth the run down there to see. What surprised me is that the quilts went for a lot less than I thought they would.

Seeing all of those quilts hanging together is so beautiful. I just think of the hundreds of hours that went into making them. I'm looking forward to seeing the rest of your pictures.

Thinking back to last year, is this the same auction with the "portable potty"?

Hi Doreen,

The work on these must be hours and hours.

Yes, this is the same auction of the "portable potty". Wonder if Jean every let David forget that.

Maybe if you go again this year, you can take a picture of something unusual and we can try to guess what it is. But we'll only trust Jean to give us the right answer.

Hi Doreen,

That is a great idea. You are right, we'll only trust Jean for the correct answer. As I took bad, it was funny what David said, but it wasn't very funny at the time. I still wonder what Jean said to David when she found out what he did. I know they had words and she was not happy.

Do you know the name of the pattern for the last picture? I would think it probably has basket weave in it somewhere. It is a beautiful quilt!

Hi Wilma,
I am sorry that I don't know the pattern. I love quilts, but I don't know one pattern name from the other.

Maybe if Martha goes to visit her Englisher parents, I can send it over to her parents computer and have her look at it. That's the best I can do for you.
