My nephew Elijah is starting 4th grade off treatment & in remission from leukemia, so I'm hosting another quilt auction for Alex's Lemonade Stand Foundation to celebrate!!
The auction will be held on eBay and the bidding will begin on Monday, September 5 at 7pm PDT and it will wrap up on Monday the 12th at 7pm PDT.
If you're new to my blog or Jaybird Quilts, something you may not know is that Elijah was diagnosed with cancer in December 2010 and he finished his treatments just over 2 years ago. There are some great organizations out there that did a lot for Elijah and his family while he was in treatment for 3+ years, and Alex's is one of them.
The team at Soak Wash contributed 3oz samples that will be included with each quilt, along with quilt washing & care instructions.
Now, to show off the quilts that will be up for auction!
This is my Box of Chocolates quilt from my book Skip the Borders. This quilt is loaded with some very rare Lizzy House prints from her first 4 fabric collections: Red Letter Day, Lizzy Dish, Castle Peeps & 1001 Peeps.
My blue Chopsticks quilt that is featured on the cover of the pattern:
This twin size Dot Party quilt is the largest quilt in the auction & it is featured on the cover of the pattern, too.
Elijah's picture is on my original quilt labels, including the label on the back of this Dot Party quilt.

This set includes a baby size Yummy quilt & Jawbreaker pillow (pillow form not included) made with Marmalade by Bonnie & Camille for Moda Fabrics.
I had so much fun doing this photo shoot with Elijah and my brother Brad (he shot all of the photos of me and Elijah in this post). I'm so grateful to be able to make these memories with them.
Let me know in the comments which quilt(s) you'll be looking to bid on next week.
Look for my #JaybirdLovesAlex posts on social media to see more images of quilts from this upcoming auction, quilts from my previous auction and some fun family photos of us volunteering with Alex's Lemonade Stand to raise awareness about childhood cancer.
