I have made several for Auctions. The t shirt quilt was for a dear friend with cancer. We sold tickets, made $3000, it was a Harley quilt, king size. The big thing about this quilt was Harley motor cylces.. if you make a quilt that really has meaning for someone they will purchase tickets. I had so many t shirts donated that I made two more that were auctioned for $375 each. And I made one for the Jim, the man with the cancer.
The funniest one I sold went to my SIL, he was at a benefit and was bidding on this quilt. My DD was sitting next to him talking to someone else and watching the sale of the quilt knowing it was mine. She looked to tell her husband, "Look how good Mom's quilt is doing. " And he said," That's your mom's? I just won it! $475 "
All for a great cause.
All these shirts were donated, I had a couple guys give me shirts right off their backs. This was a good friends benefit. The total made for this benefit was $21,000 the total of their medical bills. Praise God!
