The annual Studio Art Quilters Association (SAQA) fundraising auction runs from September 9th through 28th. It is a great opportunity to purchase fiber art pieces. I have donated the art quilt shown below, "Nature's Energy Drink II" to this auction. I hope you will check it out and consider purchasing your own fiber art piece!

I made this quilt for a Flying Geese Quilters Guild challenge last year based on the theme "History Lesson - An Event in American History". My quilt was one of eight selected to represent the guild in the American Quilter's Society national competition called the "Ultimate Guild Challenge". Our eight quilts have been juried in as semi-finalists and will be shown at the Grand Rapids, Michigan AQS show. The show is August 16 - 18. I'm honored to have had my quilt selected and shown.
If you are interested in learning art quilting techniques, sign up for my class where I teach you to make this quilt that I call "A Slice of the OC". It is based on landmarks in Orange County, California. I will be teaching the class at Flying Geese Fabrics in Tustin, California on August 17, from ,. It is a pretty fast project that you will start in the class and finish at home. The store has a kit that you can purchase that includes the top fabrics and trims. You will need to provide the backing, batting and some other supplies. The class cost is $40, and I don't know right now what the kit cost will be.
The Flying Geese Fabric Store is located at 307 El Camino Real, Tustin, CA.
