Using the challenge fabric from the 2014 Pine Needlers Fabric Challenge, (the results of which will be displayed at the annual Blackberry Jam Quilt Show in July), Virginia G. made this fabulous table runner. The challenge fabric is the paisley fabric, and Virginia added the cream and the red fabrics in with great results. I knew she was going to use it as a counter top quilt for potlucks (it’s 82″ long!) so I decided it would look good with some fairly tight quilting, throwing in some straight lines to offset the whimsical paisley quilting. Yep, paisley quilting to go with the paisley fabric! It just keeps getting better and better…..doesn’t it?
Challenge yourself and made a table runner today! Happy quilting!
Here is a great opportunity to find some really unique, handmade items!
Listed below are the 2014 Silent Auction Items for the Blackberry Jam Quilt Show. This year, for the first time, we are offering an advance opportunity to purchase these handmade items, in case you aren’t able to attend the show (…..it happens, you get busy….). The profits from the sale of these auction items goes back into our small community. In 2013 we donated to the following:
- Lowell Food Pantry
- Lowell Firehall
- Lowell Library
- Lundy Elementary Clothes Closet
- Blackberry Jam Festival
- Lowell High School Music Program
- Lowell High School Scholarship Program
- Lowell High School Nexus Greenhouse Program
If you can’t make it to the show, and you’d like to make an advance purchase as a “Buy It Now” item, please contact Joyce. We are happy to ship the item if you live out of town (at a nominal additional cost).
All items remaining when the show starts on July 26, 2014 will be available in the Lowell Grange Hall for bidding. The silent auction will be held for only ONE DAY on Saturday, July 26, 2014 so make sure to come by early (we open the show at 10 am) and put in your bid.
For the full list of items with details of sizes and pricing, check out our Blackberry Jam Quilt Show Silent Auction page. Some photos are shown below, just to peak your interest! And if you do purchase something….thank you for your support!
