How Much Would You Bid?

I've been busy quilting and binding the Java quilt for a silent auction fundraiser.  The proceeds will help defray the cost of sending the students, that won gold at the state SkillsUSA, to the national competition in Kansas City.  My youngest son will be attending again this year. 

I already had the Java Quilt top finished I quilted it this week and just finished binding it this morning.  I put it in a basket with a coffee mug, flavored coffee and a great book.

The nursery where my son works donated the pottery flower pot, I just added some seed packets, gloves, two gardening magazines and some tools to make this a fun choice. 

So would you bid on either of these, which one............I love them both so it would be a hard choice, LOL. 

It was a BEAUTIFUL spring day today so I spent some time outside with hubby insulating the new coop, we are planning on working on it some more tomorrow afternoon.  I will post photos when there is noticeable progress to share.

  1. I absolutely would be bidding on both of them... Love the quilt, that would be the first one I would be after. Great job packaging them up so nicely. Good luck I am sure they will both bring a nice return.

    Glad you are having some nice weather. We are getting some warmer temps but calling for severe thunderstorms tomorrow. Today was just another teaser.

    Hope you are having a great weekend.

    Hugs, Deb

  2. I'd bid on both of them. I especially love the warm colors of the Java quilt. I'm sure they'll both be a hit at the silent auction.

  3. Love the quilt, even though I don't drink coffee! LOL I think spring may finally be here! It's actually nice out here today and I just got the pump back in the pond. Now I can sit on the deck and listen to the water again! Have a great Sunday! :0)

  4. What a great fundraising idea, hope it goes well for you! I'd bid on both those baskets, probably the coffee first, if I had to choose just one.

  5. I see for the first time your blog and I am your quilts in love of it... the photos... the atmosphere... all really very beautiful

  6. Denise, both are wonderful donations to the auction. Anyone would be thrilled to own either of them! I bet they will bring lots of money.


I really enjoy hearing your comments, sorry I had to turn on the "word verification" but I got my first comment from a "non-person".......I prefer comments from people.
