get your wallet out

Today's the day to buy something special. And with purpose. I am auctioning this handmade baby/toddler quilt in Stephanie and Christian's behalf and one lucky bidder will have an oh-so-happy daughter! Or, this would be a fabulous gift for your sister or friend who is expecting.
bright pink, orange and turquoise are irresistible!

I have made 2 quilts (see Gigs' quilt here) for Stephanie's kids and in her words, "things don't need to, and probably shouldn't, be so matchy-matchy." I agree. If you read her blog, you know that her eclectic style is stunning. So go on, bid. Don't worry about your sister's baby colors.
She will love this!
Quilt measures approx. 47" x 35".

A few more details:
*100% cotton top *super soft minkee back *freehand machine quilted *machine wash cold *tumble dry
You know you want this! How this silent auction works:
1) Please place your bid by leaving a comment with your Bid Amount in the comments section. Check the comments to see the most recent high bid. Please bid in increments of whole dollars.
2) Following the close of the auction, I will contact the winner (make sure your comment bid includes an email address or link to your blog or some way to contact you). The winner will pay the amount of their winning bid to the Stephanie and Christian PayPal account. The winner will then forward the PayPal receipt to me and I will send the quilt to her (or him). (Or send me a check and I'll deposit the money for you.) Shipping's on me.
3) The auction will end at 10 pm MST, SATURDAY AUGUST 30, 2008. Thank you for participating!

That is so beautiful. If I had the money, I would bid, but alas we are pinching pennies for a house right now. You are very talented, Sarah!

Thank you so much. I am on eastern time, but this was so worth staying up late. Can you email me your email address or other contact info and then we can work out the payment - or forwarding of paypal receipt info? I have church at 9:00 am and will be done by noon. So let's get in touch tomorrow afternoon or evening. I am so glad to help out the Nielsons thru this auction and I'm super excited that I will have something in my home to remind me of Stephanie's world-wide inspiration and sweet spirit. And of course, all your beautiful hardwork.
