The annual SAQA Benefit Online Auction of  twelve inch square art begins on Monday, September 10, 2012, at 2PM.  SAQA is Studio Art Quilt Associates.

The small quilts this year are quite innovative and delightful!  This is the place to get a piece by one of your most admired quilt artists.

There are six pages of quilts to be auctioned.  Page 1a is: http://www.saqa.com/gallery-mini-detail.php?ID=2053
