Kayla’s Auction Post

A guest post from Kayla…

Good morning! Thank you for checking out the auction and trying the new format. In case you missed it, here is a little backstory on what we’re up to today. Hopefully this will be more organized for Mom’s charity quilt shipping auctions in the future.

Before you bid:

  • Read through the instructions on this page to understand how to bid
  • Shipping is flat rate as shown for domestic. International postage will be calculated and invoiced.
  • Be aware of when the auction closes and be accessible by email: Today’s auction is live as soon as the item is listed beneath the BID HERE comment. It soft-closes at 8 pm CST Sunday evening.
  • Bookmark the auction post

After you bid:

  • Check back on the post to see which items you had the high bid on promptly after the auction closes at approximately 8 pm on Sunday evening.
  • Fill out this form if you had any winners before Monday evening at 6 pm.
  • Keep an eye out for an email with your payment instructions and please pay by Tuesday evening at 6 pm.
  • Pay promptly so I can ship promptly on Wednesday.

I hope this works out well! If you are a winning bidder you might notice an extra question in the form. What sticker sheet would you like?

Little Red Hen and friends, vintage schoolhouse, vintage schoolhouse trims, embroidered pillowcase, or embroidered pillowcase trims?

Each order will come with a sticker sheet from my shop. The links above will take you to their Etsy listings.

Now for today’s items:

Small items are photographed against a 1″ grid to show measurements.

The shipping price given is for domestic orders. There will be a discount for combined shipping. International shipping will be calculated.

Happy bidding!


1- Log cabin quilt + $15 shipping

64″ x 72″

I wish I knew more about dating quilts because this looks like a treasure! It is in great shape. See some closeups of the blocks to see a few pinpricks. It appears to be wool. I love the backing!

2- Strings quilt + $15 shipping

60″ x 80″

I’m not ready to call this a cutter quilt yet, but some blocks have damage as pictured. The binding (bright orange!) is a bit frayed. Again, I love the backing!


3- Gray floral wool embroidery + $4 shipping

This seems to be an incomplete throw pillow kit of wool on linen.

4- Tiny covered bridge embroidery + $2 shipping

5- Floral yellow bouquet embroidery + $4 shipping

This one also appears to be an incomplete wool on linen pillowcase.

The embroidery is beautiful but there are rust pin prick stains throughout.

  1. Kayla, I think you have under estimated shipping on some of the large items. I received fabric I won in the last auction and the estimated postage was $7, but the actual postage was $15 — so you are giving us a good deal!

    1. I am! I don’t mind. Shipping is a tax write off for me so I just consider it a marketing cost. I really appreciate shipping discounts when I shop online. Thanks for your bids!!

  2. I don’t know if I’m not understanding your instructions (very possible), but I’ve tried to bid on 3 items and they don’t show. Is something else required other than trying to reply to the item (or last bid)?

  3. Hi Kayla! I filled out the form but have not received any thing from Paypal as of yet. If it is easier at this point, I can put a check the mail in the morning. Let me know what is best. Thank you!
