Paper Piecing: Custom Pattern Auction For Charity

The awesome organizers over at help_haiti on Livejournal have found a great way to get fandom (all fandoms!) involved in raising money for charity while getting fun stuff in return.

Crafters, graphic artist, writers and all sorts of other awesome people are donating their time and talents in return for charitable donations.   You can bid in the comments of the item you’re interested in and once the auction is closed on noon (EST) January 20, 2010, the items will be paid for by donating to charity!  Share your receipt and get awesome goodness in return.  The charities win and you win, too!

I’m offering up one Custom Designed 5″ Paper Pieced Quilt Pattern. You can read the full details here.  Be sure to bid in the comments at this link.  I cannot accept bids here.

Also check out these awesome auctions by two of my crafty friends:

Amber (hp5freak) is auctioning off a 3’x3′ custom crochet blanket. She makes gorgeous and unique HP-themed blankets. You can see those here.

Mary (dragonsinger954) is the maker of many a fine Molly Weasley sweater.  She’s offering a custom-made one up right here. You can see examples of her many lovely Molly sweaters here.

Also, the Queen of The Leaky Cauldron herself is auctioning off one autographed copy of Harry, A History.  It’s a good thing, too, because you can’t have mine!

Happy bidding and thanks for supporting this wonderful cause!
