Featured here are 8 quilts by SAQA-Connecticut members (shown left to right): Gail Kotowski, Norma Schlager, Diane Wright, Betty Warner, Debbie Bein, Karen Loprete, Catherine Whall Smith, Kate Themel and Ruth Anne Olson.    You can view all the available quilts on SAQA’s main website: http://www.saqa.com/saqa-u.php?ID=1791 or check out the running slide show on this blog (upper right).

The funds raised through the Auction are critical to supporting SAQA's exhibitions, catalogs and outreach programs.  All of 2010's auction quilts will remain on our website for viewing only, until the 2011 auction is underway.

This year's Auction will begin on Monday, September 12th at 2:00 pm Eastern and conclude on Sunday, October 2 at 2:00 pm Eastern. Price points will again be: $750, $550, $350, $250, $150 and $75.
