I saw a post of Facebook today that reminded me about the Quilt Alliance auction for 2017. The auction is to benefit the Quilt Alliance
The deadline is July 3rd so I had to get started on it today. The theme this year is “voices” and the quilts need to be 16 inches square.
Here is mine which I am calling “Quilt Talk” (need to bind it yet)
This is leather, quilted on the Singer 66 treadle.
In addition to an online display of the quilts, the collection will be exhibited at 2017 Alliance events, including the Not Fade Away conference on July 15 in Herndon, Virginia, the Quilters Take Manhattan fundraising event in New York City on September 19, and in the Alliance booth at the International Quilt Festival in Houston, November 1-4. Additional exhibit venues may also be added. All quilts will be auctioned online beginning November 13, 2017 to benefit the Quilt Alliance. I’ll post a link for the auction when that is set to go ( there will also be online voting I think)
Teddy and I took some more garden pictures today . (click on pictures to enlarge)
Maybe tomorrow I will have time to start that new quilt I am planning .
