Quiltingsando's Quillow Auction to Benefit our Liberty Candidates

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:

Quillow 1 - Rand Paul
Quillow 2 - RJ Harris
Quillow 3 - Ron Paul (House seat)
Quillow 4 - Peter Schiff
Quillow 5 - Adam Kokesh

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

Quillow 1 - Candidate: Rand Paul

A nice Celtic color & design:


Quillow 2 - Candidate: RJ Harris

Here is a Classic Wagon with surf boards. LOL


Quillow 3 - Candidate: Ron Paul (House seat)

Ron's is a Gold Bug quillow the fabrics are gold tone ( the colors are more muted than shown in the pics) it has a watercolor appearance -- very nice.


Quillow 4 - Candidate: Peter Schiff

This is a Nature Lovers of Birds (the red has tiny white poke a dots the pics does not show them very well).


Quillow 5 - Candidate: Adam Kokesh

This one is for the Girk Girl or Boy, the back fabric has the quote by George Eliot "What greater thing is there for two human souls that they are joined, to strengthen each other, to be at one with each other in silent unspeakable memories."

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.

Seven days to go!

. . . to win quiltingsando's hand-made contributions for Liberty Candidates.

What a great way to remember the battles for liberty 2010 with lady Q's quillows on our living room sofas! Or on the office chair by the computer.

Many thanks for your loving needle work, quiltingsando.

We've come a long way since we only had one candidate to focus on. I guess Love for Liberty tends to multiply. . . :-)

$20 for #1

"When I despair, I remember that all through history, the way of truth and love has always won. There have been murderers and tyrants, and for a time they can seem invincible. But in the end they always fall. Think of it, always." -Mahatma Gandhi

$20

For Number 5!!

It's things like this

that make me love the DailyPaul... Let me think about this auction for a hot minute...

Great Idea!!!

I'll start the bidding off with $15 each for Quillows #1, #2, and #5.

How long will we need to wait before the "closing" of the auction?? Also, I'm not able to check back all the time, so please if I end up as the winning bidder on an item (or hopefully all 3!!), email me and let me know. But in any event, I'll be checking back as often as I can.

Thanks Quiltingsando! And again, great idea!

The Quillows are wonderful!

So how do I make a bid? And I like "number 6" with the green dogwood flowers.. I think all the information you gave on the quilts is great. I'm confused about the bidding, and how long is the bidding going?

I really like numbers 1 and 5.. oh I don't know, any one of them would be wonderful to have. You are so talented and creative. Have we ever done anything like this on DP? I don't think so, but I think it is an great idea. Very exciting!!! How do we do this?

Well, I guess you could

say you would like to put a bid on number 1 for say ten dollars. Then if no one out bids you then you win. Sorry, about number 6 is not available one of my friends stopped by with Homemade strawberry jelly and I wanted to give her something for her kindness.

Beautiful, quiltsando

What a kind idea to do this! Quillows are what my 3 girls made for their first big sewing project in homeschool. They still have them. I wish I could buy a ticket, but my husband is unemployed now, and there just isn't even enough to live on here.

hopefulfilled Your Not Alone!

If we cant give money, we can give our time to help spread the message! We need ALL Boot's on the ground. I hope things will get better for you and your's hopefulfilled.

Good luck

to you hopefulfilled, happy to hear your girls all have quillows. Wish I had jobs to offer rather than just quillows.
