In the Spirit of Giving

Hello!  When I was a kid watching our 2 channels, I always wished I had money to give to Foster Parent's Plan.  Those commercials always made me cry.  Today, the same organization is called Plan Canada.  I've bought gifts each season for a couple years now.  They are the non-denominational group with the Gifts of Hope catalogue.  Here's my idea this season...  I am putting up my 'Snips n Snails' child-sized quilt for auction.  They highest bidder by midnight December 1st will have the quilt mailed to them (shipping is on me).  The money you agreed to buy the quilt for will be used 100% toward Gifts of Hope.  I will post the "highest bid" at the bottom of this post as they come in.

If you are interested, all you need to do is email your bid to me  

Once the announcement is made as to how much the quilt has sold for, I will contact that person with info on how/where to send payment (snail mail or paypal).  The quilt will me mailed once the payment to me has cleared.  At that time I will order "gifts of hope" in the winner's name.  I'll post the gifts so everyone can see.  The winner will remain anonymous unless I'm instructed otherwise. Cool?  Here's the quilt.

retro 70's solids, straight line quilting

Look!  It's practically famous.  It was on the Summer 2011 cover issue!

The quilt measures approximately 64" x 48", has 80/20 Hobbs batting, and a flannelette backing for extra cuddliness.  The auction has now ended.  Congratulations to the highest bidder!!
