Open Your Purse to the YWCA is a silent and live auction with proceeds benefiting the YWCA of Greater Atlanta and its Women in Transition (WIT) program — an 18-month program that helps homeless women regain self-sufficiency. It is the brain child of executive director Justine Boyd.

Open Your Purse 2011  measures 54 x 65 inches and consists of 16 unique purse blocks on happy yellow backgrounds. The quilt was pieced by O.V. Brantley and machine quilted by Maxine Moore. There is a hanging sleeve on the back so that the quilt can easily be hung, or it can be used as a lap quilt.

If you are attending this event, bid high and bid often!
