A special auction: Patchwork bedspread!! (Ends at 5pm, on Wednesday)

We have a very special patchwork bedspread up for auction, donated by Ms Ooi, who is the sister-in-law of Kinabalu-Kon (Kon, who led the Kinabalu-4 youngsters up the highest peak in Malaysia and raised RM16,000 for AnimalCare in December 2012).

This patchwork is painstakingly done with a lot of effort as it consists of hexagons. Those who do patchwork would know that it requires hand-tacking the cloth to a piece of manila card before sewing each hexagonal piece. Definitely more work than the square and rectangular designs that I do!

However, this piece is done with polyester cloth, so it may not be suitable as a blanket, more as a bedspread.

It measures 64″ by 89″, and is huge and heavy!

The patchwork is sewn onto a piece of cloth and it has a purple backing.

I think it would take me “forever” to do a piece like this!

Kon’s wife, Siew Ee, says her sister used left-over materials to do this piece, which makes it very eco-friendly, which is the whole intention of patchwork!

Happy Bidding!!

We wish to thank Ms Ooi for donating her masterpiece to us for auction which in turn will help many, many animals.

Thank you very much, Ms Ooi!
