Quilt Auction Part Of Island Canoe & Kayak Event

 

A vibrant Crossed Canoe quilt was created and donated by Mary Campbell of Canton, Penn. and Carol Colwell of Nichols, New York, for the Fifth Annual Washington Island Canoe and Kayak Event.

Silent auction bids will be received at breaduponthewaters@gmail.com until Sunday, June 16, twelve noon. Put "QUILT silent auction" in the subject line of email bids and include your name, address and telephone number. The minimum bid is $200.00.

The queen-size, 90 by 90 inch quilt is made with batik fabrics in rose, emerald, lime, sky blue and brilliant cobalt colors. Crossed Canoes is a traditional quilt pattern documented in the 1895 Ladies Art Company mail-order catalog.

In this auction quilt, the blocks are set with lattice strips and wave-patterned quilted borders. Canoe points in lattice extend into the borders making this a dramatic quilt for paddlers and landlubbers as textile art or blanket.

The quilt will be on display at Baylake Bank, Washington Island, preceding the paddling event, hung as a centerpiece at outdoor event activities and decorate the event keynote presentation at the Historic Washington Island Dairy during the paddling weekend. The quilt will be awarded to the highest bidder. You need not be present to win.

Racers and paddlers, beginners and experts, spectators, volunteers and sponsors are invited to the Washington Island Canoe and Kayak Event, June 14, 15 and 16. Participate in a marathon race circumnavigating Washington Island, half marathon and recreation races, guided eco-tour, sea kayak symposium, historical voyageur encampment, keynote presentation, expedition to Rock Island and a crossing of Death's Door and/or come to watch.

John Abrahams from Duluth, Minn. calls the marathon race “the premier paddling race in the Midwest.” In 2012, a New Zealand paddler, Simon Longdill, set a course record of 3 hours, 16 minutes and 20 seconds.

Kayak symposium scholarships are available for youth. More information and registration is available through http://www.washingtonislandcanoeandkayakevent.com/. Contact Valerie Fons, event director at 920-535-0077.
