To what am I referring? Your 2019 SAQA Benefit Auction quilt -- that's what! 😊
Yes, it's that time of year again. The Call for these pieces seems to arrive earlier every year, but that's due in part to the fact that opportunities to show them at Houston or other special venues have earlier deadlines.
There's only one deadline left now, though: the June 1, 2019 received by date.
Looking through the quilts collected so far, I see that in SAQA WC, Jaynie Himsl is an early bird, with her piece, Pansy Patch:
And Karen Johnson is too -- with her piece, Skinny Strips #6:
Then there's our Rep, Jennie Johnston's piece, Ragged Soul, featuring one of her signature ravens:
while Judy Leslie has submitted her work, The Open Door:
Karlie Norris McChesney has contributed another one of her colourful geometrics, MO 4:
And Debbie Plett has submitted Moon Birds Dance, evoking West Coast native heritage:
Terry Rammell's piece -- for me, resembling sun and shade -- is entitled Traces:
Nancy Riemersma has chosen to remember those who have died in war, with her piece, We Remember:
Susan Selby has created this colourful and textural autumn piece:
Nine early contributions! That's a great start!
Mine went in the mail this morning; it's from my Scotland Series:

There's still time -- one whole month -- but remember: it's a received by deadline and there is that Customs and Border Patrol to consider.
What are you waiting for?! 😉
