A Theme Emerges

My first post back from India was called Outside the Box. No surprise that my first quilt bears the same name. It begins to capture some of the creativity that abounds when we allow ourselves to explore and create. It also reminds me of how colorful India was in so many ways.

And, I already have a use for Outside the Box in mind. As many SAQA members have been mentioning, it is currently SAQA auction time - I am happy to say that my contribution for this year sold the first week. It is a nice feeling that someone else out there valued it.

I really enjoy supporting SAQA through contributing an auction piece and during my first year as a member, someone suggested getting one's contribution in early so it would be displayed on the SAQA site for an extended period. That sounded like a well thought out idea provided one has a contribution ready to donate.

So, I decided that the time of the 2011 SAQA auction is the perfect time to create a possible contribution for the 2012 auction! Of course, I can always change my mind, but Outside the Box will be put aside with the 2012 auction in mind.

Here is what it looks like at this point.  It still needs to be quilted.
