Grape Fizz to Be Auctioned Off



Update: The auction is over. Grape Fizz sold for $450, and the event overall raised more than $150,000!

A small army of makers is coming together this week to auction off items to benefit organizations that fight racism.

This effort, coordinated by Mathew of Mister Domestic and Amber of Alderwood Studio, is happening on Instagram at @misterdomesticfundraiser. The auction starts on Monday, June 8, and bids will be accepted through Friday, June 12. Over a hundred handmade items have already been listed!

I have donated Grape Fizz, shown in this post, to the event. It is a lap-size quilt (53 inches by 72 inches), the design for which appears in Amy Garro’s book, Paper Pieced Modern. It features an ombré array of Kona Cottons and Michael Miller Cotton Couture colors, ranging from a pale orchid to a deep grape, and a single floral print from Valori Wells.

The design and piecing, however, are upstaged by the custom quilting from Mary Gregory. This quilt is adorned with pebbles, ribbon candy, and paisleys. It’s really stunning work.


I am happy to support these organizations with this small gesture.
