Red & White Quilt Auction

Grandmother's Choice Sampler
by Georgann Eglinski
75" Square, 2013

Georgann's finished her sampler and she says she has too many quilts. So we are auctioning off this red and white quilt to raise money for women's health issues. You may recall she made the red and white sample blocks for the block-of-the-week blog here. We thought this would be a good end to the historical journey we took through the fight for women's rights.

The BIDDING IS OVER. EBW won it with a $250 bid.

Georgann used the same speckled red print in every block contrasted with a plain white cotton.
She made 36 blocks, 8" square.

The top.
It is set with four-patch cornerstones in white sashing 
and framed by 
a red strip border.

It's 75" x 75". Here it is as a topper over a white
quilt on a queen-sized bed.
 Kelly Cline quilted it on her long arm machine.

Here's the back.

It would make a lovely gift.


  1. How very generous of Georgann! How does anyone have too many quilts? Haven't reached that point yet.

  2. Love it, love the quilt and the generosity to donate it.

  3. Congratulations to the highest bidder, she has acquired an heirloom treasure as well as having made a fine donation. Brava!
