…the fun. Today is the opening day of SAQA’s annual Benefit Auction. Each of the 460 12″ x 12″ art quilt is made by a SAQA member. This is an online, anyone can participate, auction. Yes, I have contributed a piece to the cause.
I am struggling to get my post notifications to be sent to those who have graciously requested them. Every solution has lead to a dead end. I haven’t given up. It does mean my days and hours tend to alternate between time in the studio and seeking and trying tech advice.
My Favorite Joint…
…Is my studio. I have been decompressing there creating product for the upcoming Cohasset Open Studios. This is my first year doing this. It has taken me a while to settle on an affordable price point product that doesn’t feel like a production line. It allows me to experiment.
I purchased 8″ x 8″ wrapped canvas frames. My goal is to have 10 unique 8″ x 8″ art quilts wrapped around the frames ready to sell in November. One thing I appreciate about this is how versatile they are for placing in the home or office. They can be hung the way one hangs a painting, or they can be placed on a shelf. They are 8″ x 8″ x 1.5″.
Normally, my comfort zone is to work large, piece by machine and use 20 or more fabrics per artwork. These mini pieces are requiring me to select less than a handful of fabrics and let the fabric and/or free machine quilting do the talking.
Am I having fun yet? Actually, I am.
