quilt auction

Here it is - my 2010 Ride2Survive auction quilt, titled "How Tweet It Is":

(click image for a bigger view)
This quilt measures 56" x 56". The birdies are fused and machine appliqued. The blocks are machine pieced. It is made with 100% cotton fabric and the batting is 80% cotton/20% polyester. It is hand quilted with cotton thread. It is machine washable and dryable.

This charming quilt is perfect as a sofa throw or for a toddler bed. I will also gladly attach a hanging sleeve should the winner choose to display it on a wall.

The auction will be held on this blog. Place bids by leaving a comment on this post with your bid amount and some way of contacting you (i.e. email address). The auction will run til midnight PST June 19th (the day of the ride). We are happy to ship the quilt anywhere in the world so don't hesitate to bid. The highest bidder will win the quilt and make their donation directly to the Canadian Cancer Society (via credit card or cheque) and I will mail the quilt to them when it is completed.

The bidding starts at $50. Good luck!!!

The husbands, Gladys, and myself thank you for your support and donation.

PS. For those who are interested, the pattern is called Birdie Big Blocks by Barbara Brandeburg.

I'll start it off with $ 100. It's a lovely design, and you chose lovely fabric for it as well.

Dotty, that is so adorable!!!!

Have you put a note on the cycling groups on Ravelry about the ride? There's cycling knitters and a TdF group that would want to know about this. :)
