For those of you unfamiliar with SAQA, it is the Studio Art Quilters Association a professional organization of art quilters from around the world. It provides a wonderful support network for artists including education, publications and exhibition opportunities.
The primary fund raising activity for SAQA is the annual Square Foot Reverse Auction. All pieces are donated by members, so it is a wonderful opportunity to pick up something small from a favorite artist or someone new to you and support a great organization at the same time.
Pictured at the right is my piece for this year's auction. It is titled 'Winter Solitude', and is something new for me, technique-wise. I am just back from the Alegre retreat where I was privledged to study with Fran Skiles. I learned lots of ways of working from her, and couldn't resist trying some of them out here.
