I have been a member of Studio Art Quilt Associates for a few years. It's primary focus is promoting art quilts and professional quilt artists. It is exciting to see the quilts and the quilters that are at the leading edge of this relatively new art form. Each year they have an auction of 12" square foot quilts donated by some members. (Not me, not yet.)
All I have to say is EYE CANDY! If you check out this link, you can view the quilts and see the details about the auction. Below are 3 of my favorite quilts by Bodil Gardner, Melinda Bula and Lisa Chipetine.
