Mennonite Charity Quilt Auction
One of the features of the Waterloo Quilt Festival is the Mennonite Charity Quilt Auction. This year they had 283 quilts to auction over two days. It is a highly professional event, once a quilt is sold it is quickly replaced by the next one to be auctioned, whilst the sold quilt is packaged and numbered ready for payment and collection. It was fascinating to watch. Of course, greedy me could hardly wait to go and get my slice of home made strawberry pie with cream, all made by Mennonite women and totally delicious. I must try to replicate this recipe for sure.
My notes say that the quilt pictured here sold for about $1000 Canadian. In my book that is a real bargain.
