AUCTION Time: Your Turn to Bid Up!

I’ve hit up a few good garage sales lately.  Well actually some things came for a garage sale Kalissa was at.  She called me while at the sale and said, you like those embroidered blocks that you sew into quilts…Well YES I do!  She ended up buying an entire table loaded with embroidered items and brought it home and gave it to me.  There is WAY more than I can ever use so I’ll be selling it on the blog over the next few auctions.  I’m still sorting through the box….Yes, there are that many pieces!!  I had a request to sell some recycled shirt parts…I didn’t get time but will do that at the next auction.

Here’s the guidelines:
Bids must be entered in the comment section.  PLEASE  WRITE THE NAME OF THE ITEM, THE ITEM NUMBER AND THEN THE AMOUNT YOU ARE WILLING TO PAY.  If you are the winner of the bid, the postage amount will be added on to your ending bid price.  You can pay via Paypal.  I will also accept personal check but check will have to clear before merchandise is sent.  Bidding will close at NOON Central Time on Monday.  I will send a confirmation email to the winning bidder later in the day on Monday. Then hopefully bids can be paid and I can package the items up and get them in the mail on Tuesday.  If you do bid please watch your email so we can take care the correspondence efficiently.

#1-Hexie Blocks-$5 postage will be added to ending bid price.
There are 7 large blocks…9 small blocks.

I laid a ruler on the blocks so you can get an idea of their size.

#2-Embroidered basket blocks-$5 postage will be added to ending bid price.

This is a kit of SIX stamped embroidery blocks in a basket pattern.

Included is everything you see including the thread.

#3-Sew Steady Ruler foot and Domestic Machine Quilting Templates-$6 postage will be added to ending bid price.

These are designed to be used to machine quilt using your domestic machine.  I checked the pack out and thought it was a great set.  I didn’t keep them as it’s for a domestic machine and I have a long arm.


Next up are some embroidered quilt blocks…check these out….#4-Set of 12 Embroidered Farm Themed Blocks-$5 postage will be added to ending bid price.

There are 12 in this set of farm themed embroidered blocks.  The lady who stitched them was a WONDERFUL stitcher.  She was a terrible seamstress.  She had sewn these to a strip of fabric as a backing making these a quilt of sorts.  I ripped the fabric off and thought someone could easily work these up into a quilt.  They could use a washing and a press but I didn’t want to do that as just about then my iron would spew something on the blocks.  So I’ll leave that part up to you.

I laid a tape measure on the blocks so you could judge size.


I would cut the blocks apart and sew them into a baby quilt.


Remember me saying she was a terrible seamstress.  She flipped the edge over and sewed it down.  These stitches would likely need to be ripped out depending the size you want to trim these too.


#5-Set of 12 Embroidered Sports Themed Blocks-$5 postage will be added to ending bid price.

These would need to be cut apart and sized before sewn into a quilt.  Each block is the same design and the same color placement.  There’s a ruler on the piece so you can tell the size.

#6-Large embroider Baby Quilt top with cowboy bear-$5 postage will be added to ending bid price.  This is one large piece.

The center measures 29″ x 40″.  That measurement is the start and end of the stitching.  There is extra room at the edges to cut it a larger size the suits your needs.  Please note this has a discoloration on the horses back leg and at a couple folds.  I think a good soaking in Woolite would do the trick.

#7-Large embroider Baby Quilt top with Pig and Frog-$5 postage will be added to ending bid price.  This is one large piece.

The center measures 31″ x 51″.  That measurement is the start and end of the stitching.

#8-Set of Six Cabin Blocks with Pillowcase-$7 postage will be added to ending bid price.

Included are the six blocks you see and the one pillowcase.

Pillowcase matches the blocks.

The stitching on these is nice.  Ruler shown on block to note size.

#9-Set of Six Floral blocks-$5 postage will be added to ending bid price.

Remember me saying she wasn’t a good seamstress.  She sewed three panels with two blocks each together making this a 2×3 top.  I would rip her stitching out, trim the individual blocks to size and make a quilt with them.  The stitching is nice…

4 of these sewn together would make a great center for a lap or baby quilt.

Again I laid the tape measure out to give you an idea on the size of these blocks.

That’s the last item….
I have many more embroidered items to sort through and make decisions on.  If you like embroidery you’re gonna love all that are coming in the next auctions.

One last reminder:
Bids must be entered in the comment section.  PLEASE  WRITE THE NAME OF THE ITEM, THE ITEM NUMBER AND THEN THE AMOUNT YOU ARE WILLING TO PAY.  If you are the winner of the bid, the postage amount will be added on to your ending bid price.  You can pay via Paypal.  I will also accept personal check but check will have to clear before merchandise is sent.  Bidding will close at NOON Central Time on Monday.  I will send a confirmation email to the winning bidder later in the day on Monday.
