“Fancy Goldfish” (16" x 16")
Copyright 2015 by Susan Brubaker Knapp
Cotton fabric, acrylic textile paint,cotton thread, cotton batting.
Free-motion machine quilted.
The piece I created to benefit The Quilt Alliance (The Alliance for American Quilts) will go up for auction this week on eBay. Please consider bidding, as this is a wonderful organization! The Quilt Alliance seeks to “document, preserve, and share our American quilt heritage by collecting the rich stories that historic and contemporary quilts, and their makers, tell about our nation’s diverse peoples and their communities.”

This is one my favorite pieces, so I really want it to go to a good home!

My piece is in the first auction week of the Animals We Love contest quilts, which will go live on at 9 p.m. Eastern Standard Time on Monday night, Nov. 9, and will end  at 9 p.m. EST on Monday, Nov. 16.

Once the auctions have begun, you can go directly to the current week’s eBay auction by using this link:

  1. "Fancy Goldfish” is the best I ever saw. How you've managed to do all this colors? That's just beautiful.

    1. Paint! This is a wholecloth painted piece. I painted the design on fabric, then quilted it.


I love it when you leave comments… Otherwise I feel like I'm just talking to myself! If you have time to write, please let me know what you think.
