Riverside Lutheran Bible Camp Quilt Auction

On Saturday, four of us who are in Hope Quilters at Lutheran Church of Hope, drove about an hour north of Des Moines to Story City for Riverside Bible Camp's annual fundraiser quilt auction. It was an unseasonably mild and gloriously beautiful day.

Riverside's prairie was in lovely bloom.
Quilts were live-auctioned in the chapel.
More than 150 quilts were auctioned - everything from intricately pieced and hand quilted masterpieces to strip quilts, cheater cloth quilts, panel quilts, and t-shirt quilts. See four pages of pictures here.
Here are a few I liked.
How easy to strip piece!

The auction historically raises $50,000 to $58,000 for the camp. In these tighter economic times we pray that the auction came through for Riverside again.
