Want to own a work of art and support a great cause? The annual Quilt Alliance fundraiser begins Monday, November 14. Amy Milne, Executive Director of the Quilt Alliance, gives you a tour of just some of the amazing quilts up for auction.

View a gallery of all the quilts.

Visit www.QuiltAlliance.org on Monday, November 14, 2016, to bid on your "favorite" quilt.

The 2016 contest was for all quilters—they encouraged everyone who makes quilts to enter regardless of their style (traditional, modern, art) or technique (longarm, hand quilting, applique, pieced…)—all were welcomed and valued! This year’s theme was “Playing Favorites” and they encouraged entrants to work deep inside their comfort zone, their happy place, and the Quilt Alliance presented their resources to give everyone extra inspiration.

The rules were simple: make a 16” by 16” wall quilt showcasing the quilter's very favorite pattern or technique. Whether it’s double wedding ring or hexies, crazy quilting, textile art or modern, the quilter could make whatever they loved most about quilting right now. The Quilt Alliance was interested in documenting the state of quilting in 2016, including everyone's favorites.

Looking forward to this years auction. Was fortunate to come away last year with a rooster, a dog and that cute Koala bear. They are my prized collection of quilts made with such love and selfless giving.
