Quilt auction!

The quilt auction raises a lot of money for Mennonite Central Committee, and showcases the remarkable skills of the quilters.

    Please give the date telling when you will be posting pictures of the quilts to be auctioned off. Also, dimensions of each quilt would be helpful. Thank you.
