My 12" SAQA Square

SAQA Benefit Auction 2009

The Benefit Auction quilts are donated by members and auctioned to raise funds for the support of SAQA's exhibitions, catalogs and out-reach programs.

The 2009 SAQA Benefit Auction will begin Thursday, September 10th, 2009. It's a reverse auction with bids starting at $750. Last year's Benefit Auction raised $41,775.

Studio Art Quilt Associates is a non-profit organization whose mission is to promote the art quilt through education, exhibitions, professional development and documentation. Check out their website for details:

This, titled "Fault Lines", is my contribution to this year's effort. It is constructed of hand-dyed silks and commercial cotton that I appliqued, stamped, colored, machine stitched, foiled and beaded.

I hope someone likes it!
