Auction Time Again

Studio Art Quilts Associates (SAQA) has gathered the 12×12″ quilts again from members around the world and will begin to auction them off on September 16. You can see the quilts here.  My donated piece can be viewed here.

Meanwhile, I’ve been enjoying these hot, humid summer days by staying indoors. It is the perfect time to work in the studio and complete some long term projects. For now, I’m just giving a peek at the project because the piece is still coming together, but when I get it pressed and blocked and totally completed, I will post a better picture of it. This particular work will be a triptych (3 panels), so it will give me a chance to improve each piece as they progress. In a way,  this is similar to working in a series which is so beneficial for improving all aspects of the process.

It’s going to be in the high 90s for another week, so I anticipate having the time to move right along on this project. Then again, I’m a political junky, and the DNC keeps distracting me with entertaining and inspiring speeches.

What’s keeping you busy? I love to hear from you either by email or in the comments below.
