And my largest piece, Farewell to Ruffles, sold at the Houston Quilt show a few years ago. That has always felt very odd to me. It sold, I got a large check from the Houston Show Organizers , but I have no idea who bought the piece or why. I guess I should have exhibited it "not for sale", but I didn't realize until it was gone that I was pretty attached to the piece. At least with the Elwah piece, I know who the the buyer is, and know that she is an environmentalist and advocate for Marine ecologies, so I'm glad she liked the piece and bought it.
