Quilt Auction for Daniel

Front of quilt

Back of Quilt

The baby quilt measures 39"x33.5"

I used my beloved fabric stash of American Jane for this little quilt. The back is one single panel of printed fabric even though it looks like little blocks of fabric. The binding is a fabric I found at JoAnn's.

Detail of the quilting. I drew lines with my tailors chalk that way I'd have a guide for when I quilted it. Then I used the two different free motion quilt stitches.

On the front I used some cream colored muslin & the last of my fabric squares of American Jane. I paired it with some black & white polka dot fabric. 

I've already washed it & it has such a yummy crinkle to it.



It's ready to find a new home. Could that new home be YOUR home? I sure hope so. I'm auctioning off this little quilt to help raise money for my friend Daniel. Please take a few minutes to read his profile. He's been sick for such a long time. Ever since I've known him he has been struggling with his health. He's one of the nicest guys I know & so very talented. The money earned will go to cover living costs during the surgery & his recovery. As you can imagine any chronic illness can take it's toll financially on a family. I'm asking for your help fellow friends & bloggers to spread the word. Let's raise some money to help Daniel.

 Please spread the word. I'd love to raise as much money as possible to help out my friend!

Here's how the auction will work

I'll open the bid with $35
The next person will bid $36 or how ever much you want & so on & so forth. Bidding will take place in the comment section of my blog. Make sure you look at the previous bid in the comment above yours so you can bid accordingly. The auction will end on Saturday June 9th at midnight (my time here in Reno) When the auction ends the winner of the quilt will pay directly to Daniel's fund & once you have sent me an email with confirmation of the payment I'll mail the quilt your way. If you have any questions please feel free to ask!

Happy bidding & thanks in advance for all your kindness in helping with such a worthy cause!
