Bleeding Hearts

I am absolutely in love with this quilt. It's part of the QuiltPink auctions happening on Ebay right now, and If you don't know anything about them you should check out the information at www.quiltpink.com and the auction site here.

Over 1000 Independent quilt shops around the country (and the world) hosted quiltpink events last year. Both groups and individuals contributed finished pink quilts and they are currently being auctioned, with 100% of the proceeds to benefit the Susan G. Komen Breast Cancer Research Fund.

This particular quilt was donated by Sharon Smith from French Fantasy Designs, and looks absolutely amazing. I have a strong desire for it to be hanging on MY wall (and I'm not a wallhanging person) but with several days left on the auction the price is already over $300. As much as I would love to purchase this quilt I love that so many people are bidding and buying quilts to support research. Even better is that there were nearly 4,000 quilts donated to be auctioned off with starting bids of $150 each. While many are going for the minimum bid several quilts have sold for much more. The top earners so far have been sold for $535 and $530 and were amazing as well.

If you haven't gotten a chance yet, you should go and check it out.
