My last post indicated that I was ready to start hand-quilting my newest piece “Transfusion #3” and that is exactly what I’ve been doing for days. Major callouses have started to form on my left hand fingers as I feel the needle prick through the 3 layers of the quilt. BUT, I think I am ready for a short daily break and so I will enjoy checking into the Studio Art Quilt Associates Benefit Auction which Starts Friday at 2pm EDT! SO are your (virtual) bidding paddles ready? The 2017 Benefit Auction will kick-off at 2pm ET on September 15 with Diamond Day bidding – an early bird opportunity to purchase ANY quilt for $1000. The 12″ x 12″ Auction Quilts have then been divided up into three sections for bidding purposes. Each week, a different section of quilts will be available for bidding, starting at $750 and further reduced throughout the week. Section 1 quilts will be up for bidding on Monday. This is your chance to own beautiful and unique art quilts made by SAQA members around the world. At just 12″ square, these pieces are perfect for collecting and displaying.

Good Luck with a successful bid!
