Queensland Flood Quilt Auction


**Please note that auction closing time has now been changed to 9pm EST Monday 24th Jan**

Toni from make it perfect has started up an auction to help in the Queensland flood appeal from her blog - So to help out I am auctioning off this funky quilt to help out my fellow Australians!

The quilt is perfect for a cot quilt or a playmat. The front contains fabric from Cosmo Cricket, Patty Young, Heather Ross, David Walker and Erin McMorris plus Kona Solids. The Wadding is 100% bamboo. It is fully machine quilted with straight lines and outlines of some of the quirky shapes in the fabrics. It measures approx 97cm x 108cm

(please excuse the photos - it is still drying on my clothes line! - I will try to take some better photos later in the day)

As promised - some better photos!
