Our Church has an annual talent auction every year where we auction off our talents for the Lottie Moon Christmas offering, which is used by the Southern Baptist Convention to support our international missionaries.
I decided that I would auction off my talent in the form of some Christmas cheesecakes a couple of quilts.
I am open to suggestions, too. I asked my neighbor, Audrey, if it would be better to donate cheesecake vouchers or actual cheesecakes and was told that the actual cheesecakes would probably sell for more money, since people would be going to Christmas parties and such.
How about an eggnog cheesecake in a gingerbread crust? YUM. Do ya think that would go for a hefty price at auction, or is it just me since I think eggnog is one of the greatest things ever and should be its own food group???
As far as the quilts go, I have one ready for binding and another quilt top finished that is ready for the quilt sandwich.
Here is the almost done quilt ready for binding:
This was made with precuts from Moda "Swanky" by Chez Moi. I quilted 1/4" on either side of the seams in a standard grid pattern. Nothing fancy, but a pretty and functional quilt that will hopefully keep someone warm as well as fetch a good price to help spread the Gospel overseas. Since the blocks are a standard 10 inches, it would measure roughly 50x60....minus the seam allowances, that is. I could have added it up and did the math but.... well, I just didn't. :)
Don't forget to leave me some comment suggestions about the cheesecakes!
