Queensland Blue for Auction

Thanks to the Rainbow Scrap Challenge  I have been spending the month of January sewing blue scraps!Well, I have finally finished my blue wonky log cabin and have named it "Queensland Blue" as I have been glued to the TV, like loads of others, watching the unfolding situation in Queensland.  I no longer feel the quilt belongs to me but must be used in some way to raise money for the relief fund.  So this is Queensland Flood Relief Auction Number 2 from my blog.

Sorry the quality of the photo is not very clear - this is very simply quilted with one row of stitching along each side of the blocks.  The backing is a dark royal blue. 

This is how the auction works:

1.  Bidding will start at $20 (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.
4.  This auction is open to everyone, however $15 will be charged for International addresses.  Postage is FREE for Australian residents.
5.  The auction begins NOW and will END at midnight 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 winner will pay the winning amount directly into the 
Premier's Flood Relief Fund and send me proof of payment via email.  Once proof of payment has been received, I will post your quilt to you.
7.  Thankyou for participating and happy bidding!
