Holiday Celebration GVQC Style

Each year the Genesee Valley Quilt Club has a holiday celebration. This year was no exception. A new twist to our Silent Auction festivities was having all hand made items to bid on.
Ladies... bid high and bid often!

Mmmmm ... let's see how much should I bid?
Ohhhhhh look at that tote all made from batiks! How lovely!
There is a gift for a young reader, or how about those coasters for a hostess?

We also have a table centerpiece competition. Here are a few of the entries ..
Did you guess the winner? Why it was "Life is a bowl of Quilting!" That table won the honor of going first to the elaborate buffet that we had. I believe that there were five or maybe six banquet tables end to end of food ...
Mmmmmmm...Mmmmmmm...Really goooooood!!!
I hope all of you have a wonderful and joyous holiday season.
Be sure to find some quilt time for yourself and enjoy your families and friends.

Tuesday Night Quilter's Holiday Get Together

The Tuesday Night Quilters' holiday get together was this past week. We had so much fun. We all met at Cindy's new house. She had it decorated for the holidays and what made it even more special were all her quilts that were hanging and drape wherever you looked. Here is the coffee table starting to fill up with our gifts for the gift exchange. There were only three show and shares for the evening. Katie made the cutest baby quilt. I didn't get my camera ready in time for a photo. :( I did manage to take a picture of the two terrific table runners that Chris made. Don't you think that the red cardinals are festive?
Pattie seems to be one of the prolific quilters in the group. Here is another Happy Holidays table topper that she made for her home. I just love the red!
Seeing Pattie's Happy Holidays table topper, reminds me that time is starting to run out on my Terry Atkinson giveaway! If you haven't done so yet, be sure to read and comment on the previous post about Terry Atkinson's visit to Rochester.
