SPECIAL BROWN BAG AUCTION ITEM – REVEALED!
Each year at the Brown Bag Auction, we try and have a special item to bid on that is very unique and not in a bag! Last year, we had a military memorial wood scroll plaque donated by the late Keith Dickman that brought in over $200. Normally this special auction item is not revealed until the night of the auction. However, this year, we are going to reveal it in advance. We have a distinctive, one of a kind quilt to offer for auction. It is named the Amish Fish Quilt, named because of the colors and the nine-patch pattern. The quilt is hand quilted and beautifully sewn with variegated thread which changes colors though out the quilt. It has a nine-patch design on the front, and a fish motif on the rear in primarily purple and blue. It won a Blue Ribbon at the Chesterfield County Fair in Virginia. It is approximately 4 feet by 4.5 feet and has a pocket for wall hanging. Randi Rigsby ( Lot 111), is the quilter and has donated the quilt to the Auction, a fundraiser for the Bluebonnet Auxiliary. The Brown Bag Auction will take place after the Spaghetti Dinner on Saturday, February 8, 2020 at 5PM.
If you’d like to get a close up peek, the quilt will be available for viewing on Friday, February 7th from 1PM until 4PM in the Clubhouse; it will be displayed again on Friday evening from 6-9PM during BINGO. It will also be on display on Saturday from 11AM until auction time.
A special thank you to Randi Rigsby for sharing her talents with us and supporting the Bluebonnet Auxiliary Fundraiser!
