Queensland Flood Appeal - Auction #1

Photobucket


* the auction has ended! thanks to all who bid!!*
This is an auction for the flood victims in Australia. Please see this previous post for more information on that.


Please place all bids in the comment section of this post. Bidding will start at $25, but it had better go up! ;) I normally sell this type of quilt for $150. Be as generous as possible and share the information with friends. The bidding will be open until January 24th, after which I will contact the winner and you will pay the relief fund directly. All international bidders are welcome. I will pay for the shipping of the quilt to you wherever you are.


Here is the quilt you are bidding on:


Playing with the Boys Quilt



Playing with the Boys Quilt


This a beautiful heirloom quilt perfect for any parents-to-be and their new baby. High quality cotton fabrics are used along with a cotton batting. The colorful green and blue stripes in this quilt are perfect for a little boy. (fabric lovers will notice the green ribbon Katie Jump Rope fabric immediately!)


Playing with the Boys Quilt- Detail Shot


The quilt has a pleasing repetitive straight line pattern quilted throughout. A soft home decor fabric with white stars on light blue is on the reverse side of the quilt.

The playful scrappy binding is meticulously hand sewn in place for a flawless finish.

Please join in and help create some peace among lives that have for the moment been destroyed.

  7. Hi Angela, love your quilt and would love to bid, but doesn't paypal take a cut of payments? Would love all the $ to go straight to the fund and not part of it to paypal. Well done on your generous donation too.

  8. I would love to give this quilt to my Mother who is 88 years young (she adores blue and green) so I will call this a "reading quilt" and I will bid $150.00 plus $10.00 ($160.00) to cover the PayPal fees.

  9. Vanessa, I looked into the paypal situation and it turns out that paypal is not necessary for payment. You will be able to pay the relief fund directly! Thank you for bringing this to my attention. I have changed all the posts to reflect this. Bid away!
