Each year the International Quilt Association’s Celebrity Mini Quilt Silent Auction is held during Quilt Market and Quilt Festival in Houston. "Sunblock" is the quilt I will be donating to the auction. It's a wholecloth cotton, soy batik piece with a lot of free-motion quilt stitches and measures about 15" W X 19" L.
The money raised helps support the activities of IQA, including the annual judged show, Quilts…A World of Beauty. The quilts are auctioned on Friday, Saturday, and Sunday of Festival, November 3-6; however, they will be on display and available for bids from the beginning of Quilt Market, October 29-31.
If you go to the Houston show, hope you're able to stop by and take a look at the auction quilts and possibility bid on one to support IQA.
