So spread the word that the on-line bidding starts Monday, September 10th at 2:00 Eastern

My donation shown above was hand quilted and made from all cotton materials, vintage fabrics, and includes my photo images of hay bales wrapped in white plastic.  Titled “Twins with Matching Hats” it was selected to be part of  the SAQA 2012 Benefit Auction Sale at The International Quilt Festival in Houston, Texas. This in-person auction will begin on Wednesday, October 31st during the Preview Night from 7:00-10:00 PM Central Time and conclude on Sunday, November 4th at 4:00 PM Central.

How the IQF-Houston SAQA 2012 Benefit Auction works: This is an in-person cash-and-carry purchase only.  If you would like to purchase a specific piece and you cannot attend the IQF-Houston show, you are encouraged to find someone to make the purchase for you.  Purchase is by cash, check or credit card.
