Check out the auction.

The first three are invitational quilts in larger sizes by some truly amazing celebrity quilters, but the rest include some famous art quilters, quilters from Japan and India, and then ;)

I'm proud and honored to be included in this group but oh! I can't help but hope mine will at least garner a couple of bids!!! Oh my...such a group to have been included in!

So...if you can't afford to bid on Paula Nadelstern's invitational quilt and you know there is no way you can beat the mad crazy rush to win Andrea Balosky's.....well, don't forget angels are wonderful to have around any time of the year ;)

    This is beautiful, Michele. I love how you drew her face. She is looking right at me or maybe, into me. Love that.

  3. She is just so perfect, Michele! Oh how I wish I could afford her...I would snatch her up and give her a 'forever' home right here with me. *sigh* You outdid yourself, sugar girl!

    Super cute!

  5. She has such a lovely face, Michele. I pray she does well!

  6. Oh Michele, Your angel is lovely and I hope I don't get outbid again! Have a great holiday season, Lynn AKA:
    This Quilting Mama

  7. She is lovely. Her value, though, is greater that whatever money she may bring. She is a work or art!

  8. She is gorgeous! I stole your picture to put with this article:

    I didn't think you would mind, but if you do, just let me know.

  9. Hi! Greetings from Finland! Your quilts are so fantastic! It's so nice to find other quilters all around the world!
    Yours, Ulla
