Calico Cutters Baby Quilts Go On Sale

This past Saturday my guild set up shop at the West Chester Grower's Market to sell our baby challenge quilts - the first of 3 venues slated to sell our creations. It was a hot one - 94 degrees at noon - nothing says buy a blankie like 94 degrees! Here was our tent - that's Debbie - a representative from the Maternal Child Health Consortium of Chester County - the recipient of the proceeds from the sale. We had the most colorful tent in the market.We sold 15 quilts so far and have holds on 3 other quilts - I'll update the photo page above with photos of all of the remaining quilts as soon as I get a chance to snap the pictures.
I loved hearing the stories of the people who purchased the quilts - - - there was a beautiful quilt with a puppy on it that an uber cute little 4 year old French girl could not leave without, many grand children and great grand children will be receiving our creations, a newly adopted little girl will be swaddled by one of our member's quilts, and the "surprise" addition to the family of 5 will have a new blankie he can call his own. It was a great day! At $75 a quilt, our donation to the Consortium is significant thanks to the many generous members of my guild.

Here are a few other photos I snapped at the market to whet your appetite for all things fresh - as always - BUY PA Local - or where ever your "local" might be!

Great job with the quilts. Thanks for all the time you have put into this challenge. So glad that they were received well and went home to many happy children.
