Mennonite relief auction quilts

formatting link
My sister is spending afew days with her son (new owner of the yellow table runner!) - shetold me that they had spent yesterday at the Mennonite relief fundsale and auction. The link shows only a small segment of the quiltsthat were on display - she guessed that there must have been 1000's ofthem!! They had watched the auction for a while and thought that awinning bid of $1400 on one quilt was for a large queensized one - infact, it turned out to be a wallhanging: #90 "Going Home" - needlessto say, they enjoyed the food and atmosphere (long lines for sausageson buns).
Enjoy the show, jennellh

Our Mennonite sale was this weekend too. This was the first year is quite some time that I didn't go out to see the quilts. They are rather disappointing for the most part, but worth a peek. The auctioneers are the best part. And the food. Darn...I'm sorry I missed it!

What a beautiful collection of quilts. Thanks Jenn.
And, what a great method of showing them - having the 'close' on each made it so much quicker than usual - marvellous. . In message , jennellh writes

Thank you for the link, Jennell. I enjoyed the display. My favorite is number 75, Sunshine and Shadow. It is a unique presentation of simple squares.

Did you 'find' the hidden NEXT button? It is up in the top right hand side of the window so the 'close' only has to be used at the end - this made the enlarged viewing of all the quilts very easy. jennellh

Of course not! I never find anything that would make 'life' easier >g< I don't even think that there might *be* something like that!

I admit that I only found it myself because the mouse rolled off by itself! The new UK textile/quilt museum in York opening this week is situated in the neighbourhood where I grew up - walking distance from the site of my house (which is now a school playing field) - I've been interested to read the items that they have available so far - do you think that you will ever get there? jennellh
