SAQA Auction Donation
It's time once again to make my annual SAQA Auction donation quilt. SAQA artists from all over make 12" x 12" quilts to donate and it winds up being a great fundraiser. The auction isn't till later in the year, but I recently sent my quilt in for this year. You can see previous auction quilts of mine here (2016, 2015, 2014, 2013) I started this one while I was at asilomar. I painted a large piece of fabric for sky then cut up a bunch of big diamonds to make a mosaic (kind of like this one). Belatedly though, I realized that the project I wanted them for didn't really call for a mosaic sky. So I cut all the diamonds into 4ths, and made this small mini quilt. It was tricky because I didn't get the diamonds all lined up exactly right so the quilting is a bit messy, but I think the overall effect is ok. It's called North Wind on the Plains.
