"Mountain Retreat" 2013 Cindy Grisdela

“Mountain Retreat” 2013 Cindy Grisdela

The Studio Art Quilt Associates (SAQA) 2013 Benefit Auction is in full swing! The first phase of the auction began on Monday, with a great selection of 12″ x 12″ quilts offered for sale at $750 each. It’s a reverse auction, so every day at 2 PM Eastern time, the price drops. Tuesday it’s $550, Wednesday it’s $350, Thursday it’s $250, Friday it’s $150 and on the last day, Saturday, the price of each remaining piece is $75. Several of the quilts I had my eye on have already sold–it’s a risk waiting because you might not be able to get the one you wanted!

The second phase begins on Monday, September 16, and the final phase starts on Monday, September 23. My donation this year is Mountain Retreat, pictured at left, and it will be auctioned in the third phase.

Proceeds from the auction go to support SAQA’s exhibition program which brings quilts as art to venues all over the US and to several international venues.
