So many thanks for sharing your beautiful artwork. It will certainly not be difficult to make sure that I have my bidding 'fingers' on during the three weeks of the Auction...
The quilts below are each so wonderful and demonstrate a terrific love of the particular art techniques that the makers have demonstrated in their shared art work. Do go to the website and see ALL of the Donation Quilts and make YOUR list of favourites to be ready for the auction days ahead.
You can't always participate and send off a donation, but if you are keen to support our wonderful Studio Art Quilts Association, do consider bidding on a quilt.
I can only say that every one that has come into my personal collection is wonderful in so many ways and bring great joy each day as I pass them on the walls or our home and my studio.

The 12" x 12" Auction Quilts have 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.
At the end of each bidding period, remaining quilts will be available for purchase in the SAQA store. Unsold quilts will also be sent to Houston for the International Quilt Market and Festival (early November).
- The online bidding form will be live on September 15 at 2pm EDT for Diamond Day bidding. All quilts will be available for $1000.
- Starting September 18th at 2pm EDT, bidding starts at $750 - only pieces in the section listed will be available for bidding at this level. Each day thereafter, the price is reduced according to the chart below.
- You can bid on up to 7 pieces at a time - the first bid on each piece wins.
- Once the auction starts, any piece in an upcoming section can be purchased at the Buy It Now price of $1000.
