Approximately 150 quilted items will be available in the silent auction from 9:30 – 11:30 and 140 quilts in the live auction, which starts at 12:00. The auctioneer again this year will be Glen Fladeboe, one of the nation’s best-known benefit auction specialists that keeps everyone engaged as the auction proceeds.
Both the silent auction and the live auction will feature a wide variety of items. Children’s quilts, traditional and modern quilts, embroidered items, antique and vintage items, mystery quilts, patriotic items, Christmas/seasonal quilts and countless other quilted items will be available. A buy-it-now option will be available for 25 quilts in the silent auction and absentee bidding will be offered in the live auction for bidders who cannot stay for the entire auction.
Patriotic items will be included in both the silent and live auctions. Two wall hangings in the live auction are of particular interest. One is a 40 x 66 inch flag quilt featuring the pledge of allegiance hand embroidered in the neutral stripes. A second patriotic quilt is appliqued in the Baltimore album tradition. Both are of heirloom quality.
