There’s so much pain right now. All over. On our shores. In our backyard. Buy a quilt and send your love and energy to a place where it’s darker than where you are now, maybe. And if it’s dark where you are, hang in there.

All the info you need should be in the auction, but I’ll do my very best to answer questions.

Let’s raise some money.

Have Fun + Spread the Word,
Mary

    Mary I’m so sad I wasn’t available when auction started. I went to action a few minutes ago, and everything sold out already! I knew they would go fast but was hoping for Tues. You don’t want t o sell any more do you?
    Great idea, and it looked great.

    I think your BIN prices were far too low Mary. If you ever do anything like this again…lesson learned. I’m thrilled that you reached your goal!

    So when does Auction #2 begin!?!?!? If you don’t have enough quilts remaining, how about we bid on YOU?!? So that you don’t think I’m totally nuts, I mean, let’s bid on a visit/lecture/demo from you .. we can sit around and drink tea and eat coconut macaroons, or we can cut quilt blocks, we could sew them after we cut them, we can brush the crumbs off our faces/hands/laps and just hang out and visit … you could surprise some of us in Winterset and be working behind the ticket/snack counter at a wonderfully restored theater that you might have seen or at least heard about here in town . . .
    I have all sorts of ideas!!
    Thank-you for this idea … this was a great, selfless, wonderful, amazing and generous thing you did! LOVE IT ! ! ! ! ! !

    Mary your Memories quilt is my absolute favorite EVER!!! I was able to get a couple of bids in before it sold. In between my bid and it being sold, I was calling my parents and husband to tell them this is what I wanted for my 50th birthday, but I was too late. Rats and rats again. I remember from the show that you had a few lost blocks that were found. If you still have them and want to sell them for more charity money, let me know! I’m so glad you were able to raise so much money so quickly! I hope you do it again!
