November Meeting Show and Tell and Speaker

Can you believe we are winding down the year already? Seems we only just started meeting under Becky’s direction a few months ago! Time sure does fly when you are having fun, and that’s definitely what the Mudosck Quilters Guild does.

Our BOM for October was a Wonky Leaf, such a fun block. Becky K’s name was drawn for the first set of the blocks, which caused her much delight! And then, her name was drawn for the second set! Congrats Becky!! 

This month’s speaker was Beth Braun. She is working towards certification for quilt appraising. She had a lively and delightful talk about how to value your quilts. She brought several quilts to show how quilts can be viewed as valuable in monetary or historical terms. 

 

 


Beth started her talk with all the boring stuff, rules and regulations…

Then she broke out the quilts to give us a quick lesson in appraising.

This sweet quilt was made by a distant relative and resided in her mom’s car for far too long!


She gave us a visual lesson on determining how to value these examples from least to most in value. 

We moved them around based on our thoughts on their value. 

She used a guild member’s quilt to show us how much value it would have today.

Another quilt she did a quick appraisal on. Both are lovely in their own way, and were valued in their own way.
