Two QLD Flood Relief Auctions...and a Giveaway!!

Update 1-19-2011: It is just amazing, in just two days the QLD Flood Appeal Auctions have raised over $45,000!!! I am so happy to be a small part of it. Please go visit the button on the right..they are adding new auction/raffles all the time and there is a facebook page where you can see each individual item easier!!
Thank you all for your creativity and caring!! xoxo d
I'll make this brief....our friends in Queensland, Australia are living through a serious flood disaster and Toni of Make it Perfect and her sister are trying to make a difference. I would like to help, in my small way. So here it goes.....I have three small quilts here for the auction. All you have to do is bid on the quilt or quilts of your choice, if you are bidding on more than one please do it in a separate comment. At the end of bidding the two quilts with the two highest bids will be the auction winners and the quilt with the least bids will be given away by Random Gen!:)
Before I on the QLD Flood Appeal Auctions button over there on the right and it will take you to all the other lovely people around the world that are trying to help with auctions, raffles and sales of their lovely crafts.
Details for my auction are here we go....
Mini quilt #1- Meadowsweet
Mini quilt #2- Blue Hill Toy Box
Mini quilt #3- Island Batiks

All quilts are 100% cotton and between 15 1/2"-17" square.

How this auction works:
1. Bidding will start at $10 (US).
2. You can place a bid by leaving a comment on this blog post with your bid amount, name of the quilt you are bidding on and contact info. Please make sure that your bid is higher than the previous bidder for that particular quilt.
3. If you are bidding on more than one quilt please do it in a seperate comment...and thanks!;)
4. Your bid must be in whole dollar increments.
5. This auction is open to everyone, even International addresses. I will pay for postage!
6. The auction begins NOW and will END at 9pm EST on Monday, January 24, 2011.
7. At the close of the auction, I will contact the winner(s) (please make sure your bid comment includes a way for me to contact you). The winner will pay the winning amount directly into the Premier's Flood Relief Appeal and send me proof of payment via email. Once proof of payment has been received, I will post your quilt and a few surprises to you.
8. I will also use the Random Generator to pick a winner from all of bidders and that person will win the quilt with the lowest it won't feel like it is last!:) I will contact you via your contact info.
Please, if you don't really want to bid on one of my quilts....that's totally on the above button and have a look at what else is out there, I'm sure you will find something that is your cup of tea!;)
If you have any questions don't hesitate to email me!
