.Auction Showcase Saturday.

We are getting closer to the end of the auctions.  I have to say that I am getting VERY excited about hearing the final tally - you guys are awesome!  What a great job we have done together.  

Also exciting was an email from Anna-Maria Horner yesterday telling me that she would like to join us and host an auction on her blog!  Check out her quilt (below or on her blog) is amazing.  And while I would love to see it increase, I secretly hope that my lovely pattern distributor, Nel can take it home!  

Now, if you haven't heard about Corrie from Retro Mummy and her Quilt's For Queensland project, you have got to hop on over to her blog now and have a read.

Corrie is undertaking the huge job of helping to sew and collect quilts to be sent to Queensland.  As she says, "nothing says we care about you more than a handmade quilt."  

There are a few options if you want to get involved...
1.  You can send Corrie 12 1/2" square quilt blocks which will later be sewn together to make complete quilts.
2.  You can send Corrie finished quilts you would like to donate to the cause.
3.  You can help Corrie with supplies (backing, wadding, binding, etc.) to finish the quilts.
4.  You can offer to sew up some of the 12 1/2" blocks into complete quilts.

Read more abut Quilts for Queensland here and here.  It is entirely up to you how much you wish to contribute, I'm sure that these quilts will end up in places they are needed and will help to brighten up the lives of those who have lost so much.
Thanks Corrie for your initiative and enthusiasm!

Hope you don't mind. Have a great weekend!
