The Quilt Alliance auction of donated art quilts has started. I’m sorry I didn’t get this announcement out last week, but there is still time to bid in Week 1 of the auction if you hurry! My quilt is in Week 2, which starts November 27. Check out the auction here: http://www.QuiltAllianceAuction.org
This is the “promotional image” for my quilt, which is 16 inches square per the contest requirements:
But really, I encourage you to check out all the quilts. There is one I really like (other than my own!) and will be bidding on. If you don’t know about the Quilt Alliance, I encourage you to check out their activities here.
Second link: My friend Melanie at Catbird Quilts recently pointed out a little research project she found. Another blogger, Vicki Welsh, posted about testing a variety of methods to save a quilt that has been washed with bleeding of one (or more) fabrics. The results are very interesting, and are also useful for those of us who pre-wash (at least some of) our fabrics. Check out Vicki’s post here. Vicki encourages you to share her test results, and I encourage you to be sure to link to her original post when you do.
Have a good week!
