WEST LIBERTY – Adriel kicked off their annual quilt auction on Friday, Oct. 20 with a Family Fun Night which included a chili cook off, family games, activities, music, and auction preview.

On Saturday morning, breakfast was available, a store to shop for gifts and baked goods, a raffle and silent auction. The quilt auction started at 10 a.m. with the first item being the West Liberty Bag of Goodies which sold for $250. It contained a stay at Bobbi’s Bungalow, gift cards from Liberty Gathering Place, Sweetie Pie’s Baked Goods & Coffee Shop, Hillside Greenhouse, Kara Lynn’s and a pass to Ohio Caverns and the tote bag from Dorcey’s.

A beautiful quilt of blue hues, Starry Night, was made in Millersburg, Ohio and sold for $1,150. There were hand-quilted and machine-stitched quilts, several quilt tops and other decorative items. The auction was run by Robert Frey and friends.
