SAQA Benefit Auction: Have you Donated a Quilt?

Connecticut artists are answering the call for donations in SAQA’s 2012 Benefit Auction.  Deadline is June 1, 2012.

Jennifer O’Brien celebrates her first time participating in the auction with Show Off, Not Interested, as does Margaret Phillips with her first donation Purple Kimono.  Diane Wright leads the veterans with her 6th annual contribution, Another Collector.

Take a look at some of the beautiful quilts donated by our fellow Connecticut artists!  If you have sent in a donation but it is not yet shown on the SAQA website, please leave a comment or contact Kate Themel to add an image of your quilt to our blog.
