The 9th annual Quilt Alliance auction begins at 9pm Eastern on Monday, November 9 on eBay. The 2015 "Animals We Love” quilts were donated by artists from 23 U.S. states and from five other countries, and the range of ideas, techniques and imagery (beloved animals) is astounding. A national exhibition tour began at the Utah headquarters of Grand Prize sponsor, Handi Quilter, Inc, and included stops at the American Quilter's Society Quilt Show in Grand Rapids, Michigan, Original Sewing & Quilt Expo in Fredericksburg, Virginia, and the International Quilt Festival in Houston, Texas.
The 16”x16” wall quilts will be sold via eBay in two, 7-day auction groups (Nov. 7-16 and Nov. 16-23). The auction is one of the Alliance's most important annual fundraisers and provides crucial money to support the operation of projects like "Quilters' S.O.S. - Save Our Stories" and "Go Tell It at the Quilt Show!" The opening bid for all quilts will be $70.
