Genealogy and quilting seem to go hand-in-hand, so I wanted to share the following press release that I received this morning.

“New from Old” Auction Begins Tonight on eBay!

Don’t miss our biggest annual fundraiser–an eBay auction of 16″ x 16″ quilts. Week one begins Monday, Oct. 25 at 9 pm Eastern. View all the quilts and bidding info here.

“New from Old” contest quilts–118 in all–will be auctioned this year in four 1-week groups, running through December 6. Please note: if you search anytime before or after the auction dates/times on eBay.com, the quilts will not be viewable. See all of the auction dates here.

All quilts start at $50 and most will sell for under $100. Don’t miss this chance to invest in a beautiful quilt and an important organization. The AAQ uses funds from the annual auction to coordinate projects that document, preserve and share the rich history of quilts and quiltmakers.

This is not related to the above article, but if you enjoy quilting, genealogy, and how the two go together, you should really check out Genea-Quilters. Contact one of the contributors on that site if you have a quilt story or something to share.
