Adriel School held its annual quilt auction Oct. 15. This benefits Adriel school activities such as spiritual guidance, summer program, and foster care.
Over 60 beautiful quilts, antiques, Ohio State and Michigan Battling Coolers, chainsaw-carved bear, quilt frames and many other items were up for auction.
The items were donated by folks who are local, throughout Ohio and from several other states. The time, creativity, and love that went into the quilt making and different crafts was obvious, all given to help the school with their activities and Christmas presents.
Time to preview the items up for auction was on Friday night and Saturday morning. They also had other activities besides the auction. Silent auction, raffle, 60/40 raffle, backed goods and gift shop. Food was provided all day and music was enjoyed on Friday night. The Auctioneer was Robert Frey, Kevin Frey, Mark Frey and Greg Foughty.
One never knows how much a quilt might go for, but if it is hand-quilted it could go for more because the more work that goes into a quilt the more it is worth. It also depends a lot on how many people want the quilt and how much they are willing to spend.
The Girls of Sycamore House made a quilt called “The Art and Creativity of Sycamore” with the help of their special friend, Claudette Cramer. The quilt was 42” x 50”, multi colored and pieced. It sold for $850!
