Children's I SPY QUILTs Auction & Giveaway


I have finished all three I Spy Quilts. Two of them are now up for auction. The smaller one will be a giveaway. (Please note this giveaway is for shipping within the US only.)

Each quilt comes with a list of lots of fun things you can try and spot in the quilts. My children are totally enchanted with these quilts. I will post more about how I quilted them again soon.


PROCEEDS:
All funds from the auctions will be donated to 'Quilting A Memory'. This is a charitable organization that provides free quilting services to the families of fallen service men & women - using their clothes/uniforms to make beautiful & detailed quilts that can be treasured for ever. Materials for a Queen sized quilt typically come to approximately $130. It would be wonderful to raise something around this amount by selling these two quilts.


Please bid on the quilts - these links will take you to their listings on eBay. Auctions & Giveaway will end Sunday December 15th and I will mail the quilts on Monday 16th.

I'd like to say I'd love this for my boys but......it's all for me, I want to pay and I'm not sharing!!!! In all seriousness your work is stunning, you never fail to amaze me with your talent xx

Mel said...

these are adorable! I think if I won it, though, I probably won't keep it. I think I'll donate it to one of the community groups up here that helps families provide christmas for kids. my family already did underthings, socks, gloves, and hats and coats for two bigger kids ( everyone gives little kid/baby stuff, and bigger kids don't get as much donated for them... please consider this if you donate items!) and this would be a nice item to give for maybe a late comer to the group who might not have had someone to buy for them.
