Subversive Stitchers and Studio Arts Quilt Associates

The following works of art are one foot square quilts, brilliant fabric collages by individual artists. I found them being auctioned at Studio Arts Quilt Associates and you can find many more there. Most are sold, but the SAQA will undoubtedly lead you to a particular artist, if you're interested in a similar piece.

I worked in fabric for some years, producing impressive hangings which I still have, as not one sold. The problem was, of course, that they took hours and hours to make, and the price I placed on my time was out of reach for most people. But they are heirlooms of the future, for my family to do with as they wish one day. Perhaps they'll have huge value. Anyone looking at the stunning work below can understand how that might happen.













I found details of this auction originally at Subversive Stitchers, which is a charming quilters' blog, with lots of lovely links if you're a fabric maven.

Have a great weekend. See you next week.
