Mini Madness

You might read that our town is in the throes of March Madness and that is quite true. KU plays UK tonight for the NCAA championship game. (Palindrome alert: KU-UK)

What you might not know is that we are also in the throes of Mini Quilt Madness. Yes! The ingenuity of our Georgann Eglinski has minis on display all over Lawrence. She scored some space in a gallery for First Friday last week. Seven of our quilts sold that evening, with proceeds of $280 going to local groups: Douglas County CASA, the Douglas County AIDS Project, GaDuGi Safecenter, Habitat for Humanity, the Social Service League, and the Spencer Museum of Art.

Other quilts are on display in the window of Sarah's Fabrics. Sarah challenged guild members to use certain fabrics (she gave us fat eighths). Look what was created as a result.

All is good publicity for our upcoming Quilt Show on April 21-22. Don't worry, there will still be more than 100 mini-quilts available to auction bidders there (and each will have a buy-it-now price so you don't have to wait to take it home with you).


  1. There is quite a variety in the show. I love yours. Good luck! I hope you raise lot of money.

  2. Mini-quilts are my new passion. What a great fundraiser for some very worthy causes! Super idea!!!
