Charity Quilt Sale!

I'm popping in today to let you know about a quilt sale that I'm having on Instagram.

Most of you know I've made a lot of quilts and have a lot of quilts! Over the years, I've donated quilts to different causes when I could. This time I'd like to do a little something different.

I'm auctioning off 4 of my large quilts. 100% of the proceeds from the sale will go to a non government funded non-profit that provides support and assistance to children in foster care in South Carolina called Fostering Great Ideas. This wonderful organization hosts programs such as Moms Matter, a free peer support group that helps Moms on their journey to get their children back. In addition, they offer tutoring, mentoring, sibling visitation, college support and so much more.

I would like to support their Carry On program which provides luggage to children who are often moving from home to home. When a child moves, trash bags are used to carry their belongings. Providing luggage allows children to move on with dignity. I'll use much of the proceeds to purchase these rolling suitcases from Amazon in some fun colors. Any remaining monies will be used for a cash donation.

The auction will take place on my Instagram account @clammon. Two quilts will be posted on Monday and two on Tuesday around noon Eastern. Bidding will start at $100 and payment will be by PayPal (US only).

And now on to the quilts up for auction!

"Marmalde" is a quilt made from a pattern by Camille of Thimbleblossoms. It's 67" x 76" and made in "Bliss" fabrics from Bonnie and Camille.


The back is Red and pink polka-dots from the "Bliss" line also.


"Rise and Shine" is also a pattern by Camille of Thimbleblossoms. It measures 58" x 70".


The back is a mint colored floral print.


This is the original "Garden Fence" quilt. The pattern is featured in my book "Simply Modern Christmas" and measures 60" x 80".


The back is pieced in yellow and gray prints.


And finally, my Summer String Quilt. The pattern is from a free tutorial by Jessica of  A Blue Sky Kind of Life.


The backing is pieced and features a large floral print by Anna Maria Horner.


All of the quilts are clean, never been used and from a smoke-free, pet-free home.

And finally - I have a big favor to ask - since most of you are quilters (and maybe don't need another quilt), can you let anyone who might be interested know about the sale? All they'd need to do is check out the Instagram posts on Monday and Tuesday.

Thank you so much! Let's help some kids get a good start in life 💗
