Want to own a work of art and support a great cause? -- Like the beauty to the left by Allie Aller (Show 1906) -- The annual Quilt Alliance fundraiser - Part 2 - begins Monday, November 28. Amy Milne, Executive Director of the Quilt Alliance, gives you a tour of just some of the amazing quilts up for auction.
Visit www.QuiltAlliance.org on Monday, November 28, 2016, to bid on your "favorite" quilt. The auction ends December 5, 2016.
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.
