Quiltingsando's Quillow Auction to Benefit our Liberty CandidatesSubmitted by quiltingsando on Wed, 08/05/2009 - 16:58
My Dear Daily Paul Family:
We are bombarded daily with sobering information and one thing we have realized is that good leaders are hard to come by. When we have people willing to put themselves out there, it is up to us to support them, the best we can. These are hard times and it is a lot to ask people to donate hard earned money. It is my hope that we here at the Daily Paul can have a bit of fun while raising money for our candidates.
I have made five quillows that I wish to donate to be auctioned on the Daily Paul with Michael's permission. The fabrics came from my stash that I have been collecting over the years. The winner will make a donation to one of the declared liberty candidates, and I will mail the quillow to the winning bidder. The candidates will receive the money and I hope we can have a few laughs along the way.
The donations are based on the honor system. If the winning bidder says they sent the donation, I will take them at their word & trust them that they have done so. The only way to create the world that we want to live in is simply by doing it, so this is my contribution to that end.
What is a Quillow? A quillow is a quilt that folds into a pillow. A quilt is two layers of fabric with a batting in between, sewn together. Quillows are practical and handy. In the car, on the couch by the lazy boy. They make great gifts for young or old!
Wash cold and line dry or tumble dry on low. Pay attention to how you unfold them so you can fold them back. LOL
It will be nice to show our candidates that we believe in them and stand with them. Each of the quillows are paired with the following candidates:
How the auction works: In the comments section put the number and your bid. The auction will go til August 5 and close at 8:00 pm Eastern Standard Time. The Winners will be announced at NOON on the August 6 because I get up late. LOL
Peace, Luck & Love quiltingsando

Here they are all together, including Quillow 6, which has already been spoken for.
Thank you, Michael for giving me this opportunity to acknowledge all the good people trying to make a difference.
