OUTLANDER Quilt on eBay

Some of you may remember the wonderful OUTLANDER quilt made by Susan Leidy, aka "Sooz", several months ago.  What you may not realize is that Sooz made a second version of this quilt, had it signed by Diana Gabaldon, and donated it to the OUTLANDER Silent Auction that "OUTLANDER: The Musical" co-creator Mike Gibb is sponsoring.  All proceeds will go to Friends of Bianca Pet Rescue.



This beautiful handmade OUTLANDER quilt is up for auction on eBay right now!  (Click on the picture above to see a bigger version.)

Here is the description from the eBay listing:
Exquisitely handcrafted Outlander Book Quilt offered by Friends of Bianca Pet Rescue for Silent Auction.  Donated by and signed by the artist, Susan Leidy, and signed by the author of the Outlander series, Diana Gabaldon (pictured with the quilt). Each book is duplicated with fabric and embroidered title matching the USA book cover.  Even includes the yet-to-be-released book, Written in My Own Heart's Blood (cover color/title as imagined by the artist, since the upcoming book jacket is yet-to-be-determined).  Special Celtic Charms attached to each book, plus extras including the ribbon bookmark of the 20th Anniversary Edition of Outlander, bead pearl bookmark in the Outlandish Companion and carved wooden snake given to Jamie by his brother, Willie.  One of a kind unique item that will be the envy of all your Outlander fan friends!  Suitable for hanging.  All proceeds go to homeless, abused or neglected pets in need!
This auction ends on Tuesday, May 15, 2012, at 7:00 pm Pacific Time.

Bidding is now underway, and it was up to $355 when I checked just now.  I realize that's a lot of money, believe me, but if you can afford it, and if you'd like to see this beautiful quilt hanging in your own home, consider placing a bid.  It's for a good cause!

Congratulations, again, to Sooz, for doing such a beautiful job on this quilt. <g>
