SAQA One-Foot Square Auction

I am a member of Studio Art Quilt Associates (SAQA), and am proud to be participating in the second annual online auction called “One-Foot Square.” Members were asked to create a 12" square piece and donate it to the auction. It is a major fund raiser for SAQA; last year’s auction raised more than $27,000. The auction will begin Nov. 10.

My donated piece, “Varigated,” is shown above (detail shot below).

You can see the pieces already donated by clicking here. My piece will show up here in the next week or so.

SAQA is a non-profit organization whose mission is to promote the art quilt through education, exhibitions, professional development and documentation. It now has more than 2,000 members from around the world.

If you are an art quilt lover, please consider purchasing a piece to benefit SAQA. I'll post more details on this blog as the auction gets closer.
