Back in early May when I was on quarantine after my radio active iodine treatment for my thyroid cancer I met a lady from New Hampton named Sue. At the time she was wanting to down size. Her hope was to sell a couple of hand stitched quilt tops she owned and donate part of the proceeds to my charity quilt project to help cover some of the cost of batting, thread, backings and postage of our charity quilting project.
I was happy to accept her offer of quilt tops. So what I am doing is auctioning them off here on the blog.
So here are the specifics. These are hand stitched quilt tops-only quilt tops. All are in good condition-no rips, tears, or stains that I noticed. To bid all you need to do is to go to the comment section and place your bid. Bidding will close at 10pm on June 23th-central time. A $13 fee will be added to each quilt top to cover shipping and to provide $100 worth of insurance. Should one person purchase all of the auction items, we’ll figure out an alternate cost to combine some of the shipping.
#1 Quilt- Aqua Four Patch- 76″ x 90″. The background color on this one is just great.
Notice that the corners are mitered.
Here’s a view of the back so you can see the stitches.
That was quilt #1.
Now for quilt #2…this one is so whimsy. I love it! It is 81″ x 81″.
See the unique mis-matched block.
Here’s the stitching…
Check out this mis-matched ones. This quilt has a lot going on in it! If you look close to the picture on the left you’ll see that the aqua fabric from the first made it into this quilt. That’s making me guess that the 1st quilt was made first and this one was made later.
I also have another small hand stitched piece. This one my daughter Kayla gave me. I’m not sure where she got it and it has no history that I know of. It isn’t completed. It is what you see. It is hand stitched. It is 86″ long and 20″ wide at the widest part. I thought about cutting it down and making it into a table runner.
Here’s an idea of the colors in it. This is a nice piece. It’s too bad it’s not bigger.
So there you have it. The auction starts now.
