Guild members donate miniatures and small wallhangings to the guild every year. These are then auctioned off at the annual Rio Grande Valley Quilt Show.
The miniatures and small wallhangings are displayed at the January guild meeting. Guild members vote on their favorite one. Prizes are awarded for the three most popular ones, $100 for first, $75 for second and $50 for third.
The miniature or small wallhanging must be smaller than 144" when all sides are added together and they must be donated to the Guild. The piece needs a label with the name of quilt, the maker and the year. The quilt doesn't need a sleeve for the show, but it would be courteous to the buyers to provide a sleeve or other method of hanging the quilt.
The Rio Grande Valley Quilt Show uses the donated miniatures and small wallhangings for a silent auction. Last year the silent auction turned in over $1,000 to the quilt show.
Please help us beat last years proceeds. They are fun to make.
