The last four years I have spent a lot of time reading this blog. Their precious daughter died recently, it breaks my heart to read their story. I'm not a person with mounds of cash laying around, but I do have the ability to make quilts. I recently made this quilt, I'll share more about it in a week or so, but I've decided to donate this quilt to a silent auction for the family. I had planned to take it to an auction tomorrow but I've decided to share it on here instead. I'm not looking for any recognition or credit for this quilt. I just want to help the family raise a little money to pay medical bills and for the funeral for their darling daughter.
(all money raised by this auction will go to the McDonald family.)
The quilt measures 53" x 69"
materials for this quilt and the machine quilting would cost you about $175. not including the labor to make it.
The quilt "Skittles" was designed, pieced, and machine quilted by me.
I hold all of my quilts really close to my heart, I have never sold a single one of my quilts so this scares me to death.
Please read their story and think about this family when bidding.
So here are the rules.
Bidding starts at $100.00 usd.
Bidding will close at 7:00a.m. MST. 11/22/12
Payment for the quilt must be received within one hour of auction closing.
I will send you a paypal invoice for the quilt. Shipping is free.
Leave a comment with your bid.
Email address must be left in bid or emailed to me (firstname.lastname@example.org)
Thanks so much for your support!
Bidding has closed. My heart is very full today, thank you very much for your kindness and thoughtfulness to everyone who shared this families story and who bid on this quilt. Thank you so very much to Donna for purchasing the quilt. You are truly an angel. I hope you have a very blessed holiday season.
