A $72,700 quilt story
A few years ago, my brother helped me find KU basketball players to autograph a quilt we made for charity. He's a baseball fan too. So when he sent me a link to a baseball signature quilt going up for auction, I knew it would be good.
"My Favorite Baseball Stars". Clara loved the St Louis Cardinals (the next quilt) and played for a Springfield, Illinois girls team (the last quilt). She died last year.
These quilts were auctioned yesterday in Missouri. Read more about the auction results here. The winning bidders spent $72,700. $62,500 for the top quilt and $10,200 for the Cardinal greats.
Autographs, anyone? Start your sports autograph quilt now. Your survivors will thank you!
And stay tuned, I'm editing a new book that will feature our basketball autograph quilt and MORE. It is due out next summer and you'll be surprised who the author is......
