This is just a short post from Everfree to let all of you know how much the quilt sold for at auction:

$20,000


No, I didn't put too many zeros. We made twenty thousand dollars for the Seattle children's hospital with the quilt! Thank you everyone who participated and made it possible! I wasn't planning on doing this again next year, but after that reception I might need to!

Hope you don't mind me tossing a note EQD's way. I wanted you to get the recognition you deserved for a job well done! Heck, EXTREMELY well done. Herding cats is probably easier than organizing artists. ;)

Not at all! I was happy to see it posted up there. It's interesting to see the varied reactions. Honestly, I'm quite surprised that there are any reactions other than "Omg that's awesome!"

I was honestly surprised that I didn't have more difficulties with the organization. If/when I do this again for next year I am going to be more strict with deadlines and replacing people who are late though!

I was kind of shocked it didn't get picked up as soon as it happened, and I didn't want it to be overlooked. Charity work and fundraising is part of what sets our fandom apart from almost all the others (maybe the 501st is more established, but give us Bronies time...hehe). 
I was surprised you were as patient as you were with late entries, but since I'm military, perhaps I've been trained to be a little more...animated...when deadlines run out. ;) Glad to see you're thinking about doing it again, though, since this one was received so well!

Me too! I still can't believe it! It went for almost the entire amount that the charity auction made last year.

Wow!!!!! Oh my gosh I wish I was there! I would have loved to try for the quilt but I'm glad all the money went to the hospital. All of the artist who took part made it look amazing.

I know! I can still hardly believe it!I figured we'd get in the 5k range tops, which still would have been awesome, but this just blows my mind.

Told you it'd fetch a good price! But wow, even I didn't expect quite that much. Four digits, sure, but five? That's incredible, simply incredible.

Y'all can be mighty proud of yourselves there - everyone who worked on this deserves a HUGE thanks for making this possible. I'm sure the Seattle Children's Hospital is over the moon!
