Drum Roll, Please!

Gold Kimono

Here is the first view of the finale of the Art Auction for Japan Animal Relief.

The wall hanging is about 18″ x 22.” The kimono is from Kona Bay Fabrics while applique elements were taken from complimentary fabrics and stitched with gold metallic thread. The surface is free motion quilted.

“The quilt as pictured is still in progress due to the excellent help at our house,” Wanda said. “The dark rust will be stipple quilted to give a flat surface, then bound with a contrasting fabric.”

@MaggieTKat and @ParkerSKat are hard at work helping Mom make the sewing as beautiful as possible. Actually, even I  got to consult on one element of the quilt. (I think the samurai in the lower right corner is a nice touch.)

Friends, we will start the bidding for this amazing quilt at $25. This will be our last auction for this round, and no telling when we’ll have more art to auction to build another gift for animal relief, so I hope everyone will jump right in with a bid or a comment. We’ll be making a donation on behalf of EVERYONE who participates in our auctions, artists, supporters, bidders, commenters, retweeters, friends, pals…..

Thank you all for joining in this effort to lend our Paws for Japan.

Again, bids are placed by commenting on this post and offering your amount. Opening bid is $25. Please, increase bids in increments of $5 or $10. I’ll make the gift to World Vets for Japan Animal Relief as soon as we close out the auctions.

Bidding will be open until 10:59 CDT on April 11.
