Don't all of your quilts go for that? Man, in Possum Trot that's a low ball bid, lol

I would think that there is a type or two of too many zeros. I can't believe that anyone would think they could get that kind of money from a quilt. I know that I read somewhere about one made in Australia I believe that went for over 800,000. But that one was different than this.

Maybe it's all those uplifting Bible verses that are worth the money!! Blessed be the (wo)man who buyeth this quilt for I am truly blessed.

I'm with MTS, he just wants attention. Did any of you notice there was no "visitor counter" display? I'd like to know how many people have actually visited just to look.

All it takes is one bidder. Long before the internet a college kid placed a small classified in several upscale business magazines saying poor college student struggling, please send me just $1 to help me stay in college. The boy received over $2 million dollars and he did finish college.

At least they are offering something. On Ebay search bar type in "please help" and check out all the "auctions" where people are just begging for money. Against the rules but people do it anyway.
