A Guild “Boot Sale”

Last Saturday, our guild had a “Boot Sale” … or a garage sale. We met in the parking lot of a local church and spread out our items.

The guild had a lot of fabric spread over several tables. Here’s a picture of just ONE of the tables.

Our new vice President collected money from the guild sales and also helped some to renew their membership for next year.

Don’t you LOVE the antique suitcases that Linda showcased her fabric in?

And a laundry rack for displaying beautiful fabric!

It was a beautiful sunny summer day, but you could buy a toboggan or winter quilts!

More treasures:

Guild Library books for sale:

More quilting gems!

And I sold a few of my smaller quilts, placemats and wall hangings.

A Recent UFO finish

This quilt was my most recent UFO finish! It was started in 2009, when I did Bonnie Hunter’s Carolina Christmas mystery quilt. These blocks were left-over and were sandwiched with Warm and Natural and tucked into a closet. Now, I haven’t used Warm and Natural for a zillion years … I’m sure I’ve gone through at least 5 full rolls of Hobbs 80/20, plus more Hobbs that I’ve received through Island Batik. When I quilted this a couple of weeks ago, I was reminded as to why I LOVE Hobbs batting so much!! The W&N has way more lint and it doesn’t quilt as smoothly as Hobbs 80/20. (Now – this is just MY opinion).

I was Featured!

Jennifer, from  Inquiring Quilter and Kelly from My Quilt Infatuation featured my Barn Quilt. You can read about it HERE.

One who sleeps under a quilt is covered by LOVE!

Happy Quilting!

    • Yes, it was fun! I didn’t buy a single thing at the sale! I’ve already renewed my membership, so I didn’t need to spend money for that! I’ve never tried Quilter’s Dream, but with the amount of Hobbs I have, I won’t be buying any for a long while!
      Happy Quilting! -)


    • Hi Brenda,
      Having an indoor sale in the winter sounds like a great idea to break up those long winter months!
      How nice for the senior center to set everything up for you!


  3. Your Carolina Christmas quilt turned out lovely, Gail! And your guild’s “boot sale” looks like so much fun. The toboggan made me laugh. I haven’t seen one of those in many decades, since I was a little girl in Minnesota. Not much use for a sled like that in the South, although my son could probably use one up in the mountains at college where it snows!

    • It was a lot of fun, Rebecca Grace! It was great to see other guild members in person and meet a few new people as well! The toboggan won’t get a lot of use here – but there are mountains close by – so it may be used there!
