Toni has started up an auction to help in the Queensland flood appeal from her blog, make it perfect.
Now for a quick update:
There are over 240 blogs and pages participating
over $45,000 has been promised in auctions.
Happy bidding and thankyou for adding to the desperately needed funds for assistance!


There are many Blogs and Facebook Pages participating in the auction and you can find out which ones by going to make it perfect and seeing the list which will be published this weekend.
How the auctions work is described on Toni's blog and each Blog or Facebook Page will be doing their own thing.

I am putting my Harvest Dance Geisha quilt up for auction.
The quilt is Made using one of Lonni Rossi's original Harvest Dance Geisha Panels and some of her other oriental inspired fabrics. It's about 130cm long and 80cm wide, with an inbuilt hanging sleeve on the back.
It's completely machine pieced, appliqued and quilted by me and was made as a sample for one of my most popular workshops.
I will upload some photos of the back and details of stitching later, but for now, let's make a start. May she go to a good home!
Bidding starts at $5o.

How this auction works: 1. Bidding will start at $50 (Australian).
2. You can place a bid by leaving a comment on this blog post with your bid amount and email address. Please make sure that your bid is higher than the previous bidder.
3. Your bid must be in whole dollar increments.

5. The auction begins NOW and will END at 9:00 PM on Monday 24th January 2011.
6. At the close of the auction, I will contact the winner (please make sure your bid comment includes your email address). The winners will pay the winning amount directly into the Premier's Flood Relief Appeal and send me proof of payment via email.
