Helping Haiti: Auction Item Dandelion Wishes Quilt

Auction item:
Dandelion Wishes Quilt


Quilt name: Dandelion Wishes
Finished size: 57" x 77"

"When I saw Jocelyn’s tweet, I knew right away that I wanted to join The Fat Quarter Shop with their timely and generous offer to help support Haiti in this devastating time. I wanted to donate something really special and I immediately thought about the awesome profile that American Patchwork & Quilting did on our business in Spring 2008. The quilt featured with that profile was called 'Dandelion Wishes' and it was one of our all time best selling kits! The quilt measures 57" x 77" and uses exclusively the Dandelion Girl collection by Fig Tree & Co. It has a pieced background and some simple appliqued flowers strewn around the top. Designed by Joanna Figueroa, pieced by Wilma Lawrence and Joanna Figueroa and quilted by Diana Johnson.

As you think about whether or not you are able to bid, please remember that you will receive a timeless quilt and a few more people in Haiti will receive medical aid and food. Not to sound preachy, but really, how can we not give, given all that we have? An auction just makes it that much more fun. Happy Bidding, Joanna."

Donated by Joanna Figueroa of Fig Tree Quilts. (Thanks Joanna!)

Minimum bid is set at $150. Please put your bid amount, first & last name or nickname in your comment. Please read this post for more information. Auction will close at noon CST on January 29th.
