Our local chapter of Project Linus has been given a lot items that are intended to be used for Project Linus, but that we cannot turn into quilts. Or if we could, the quilts would not be kid-friendly or too big or too costly for Project Linus to have quilted. Project Linus wishes to sell off quilted donations that are not kid friendly.
We will be setting up a silent auction of donation of quilts and items. Items will have pre- set prices and we will be able bid on the items. Other guilds and groups will be invited to attend.
The 17 items are:
A beautiful hand appliqued flannel quilt top
A simple 20" x 30" double wedding ring pattern appliqued on a white background, but the pieces in the rings are 30s and 40s fabric.
A queen size quilt top, floral spools pattern
A queen size quilt top, Garden Lattice, pink, green and white
A quilted jacket
A "Quilt Ladies" panel throw top
A gold and purple impeccable pieced center medallion for a large quilt
A batik bargello quilt top
A Fairy Frost fabric center star medallion for a quilt
A Christmas-y table runner ready to quilt with batting and backing
A 3-D appliqued block of violets
A fused applique block, 16" x 24", of birds on a fence
A sort of bargello heart made with floral material of 1 1/2" squares, center medallion for a quilt
A sparkly blue and white table topper, finished, could easily be turned into a tree skirt
A purple and gold, stack & whack method table runner
A fall color table-runner, top only, made of 3 pieced blocks
A large black, green and red pieced quilt top
The board saw the items and they were special. Many of these items are samples that have been donated by quilt shops.
Money raised will be used by Project Linus to help support their quilting mission. We will be earning a payment for holding the auction.
