Queensland Flood Appeal Auction

This auction has now ended. Thank you Patty for your winning bid and everyone else who placed a bid!
The Queensland Flood Appeal Auctions together raised $99,089! Isn't that awesome!

After writing this morning's posting, I read about the Queensland Flood Appeal Auctions on Toni Coward's Make It Perfect blog, and decided to join this great initiative. It is an online auction with all proceeds going to the Premier's Flood Relief Appeal.

I offer for auction this quilt:

Monstera deliciosa*
40 x 40 cm
Whole cloth quilt, reverse applique, machine quilted

How the Auction works:

1. Bidding starts at AU$50 (= 38 Euro / US$50).
2. Place your bid by adding a comment here stating how much you are willing to offer to own Monstera deliciosa. Your bid must be greater than the previous bid.
3. All bids must be in whole dollar increments.
4. The auction is open to all and the price will include postage to any address worldwide.
5. The auction is now open and closes at 9 pm on Monday the 24th of January 2011 (Brisbane, Australian time)
6. I will contact the winner at the conclusion of the auction. The winner must commit to sending their bid to the Premier's Flood Relief Appeal and provide an email receipt as evidence of payment. Once I have evidence of payment Monstera deliciosa will be posted to its new owner.

Your generosity is much appreciated, particularly by those most affected by the floods. I offer you my thanks on their behalf. Please share this auction with as many people as you can.

* The quilt was inspired by this photo.
