Empty Bowls, Quilt Bowl :-)

Remember this?

It’s the clay bowl I decorated for the Empty Bowls Sale, which is a benefit for the food bank in my area. Just look at it now!

I am excited by the way it turned out. Not perfect, but okay for a first attempt. 😉 It was one of about 1000 handmade bowls that were donated for Friday’s sale.

The sale started at 4 o’clock and look at the line of people waiting to enter the tent.

Bill and Angie are always the first in line for this annual event. They bring chairs and a cooler to “tailgate”, arriving at least two hours before the sale opens.

They arrive in style as well! (One of these days, I really will go for a spin with them instead of just posing for pictures with Bill!)

The sale lasted four hours and only about 75 or so bowls were left at the end. They will be available for sale at the food bank for the rest of the month.

I had also made a glass plate for the sale at the Fuse-a-Thon:

Sadly, I was told it had trouble during the firing process and could not be re-fired in time for the sale. I will get the chance to buy it later, but the glass ones at the sale were beautiful!

The Empty Bowls project is a great way to help your local food bank. If you get a chance to be involved in your area’s event, do it. 🙂

And, yes, I did get to buy my quilt bowl, along with a few others! LOL
Until next time, Happy Quilting!
