It's that time of year when I make several small quilts to donate to good causes. I always make a 12" x 12" piece to donate to the SAQA (Studio Art Quilt Associates) Benefit Auction in September and I always donate a small piece to the International Quilt Association (IQA) for their silent auction during the International Quilt Festival in Houston. So this past week, I have been knee deep in tuning forks.
I ended up with 3 small quilt tops. The first is for the SAQA Benefit Auction. I'm calling it Singing the Blues (Tuning Fork #47). This piece will be 12" x 12", but is currently 14" x 14" unquilted:
The second piece, Bahama Blues (Tuning Fork #48), will be auctioned off in Houston by IQA in November. The colors remind me of the blue hole we swam in on Andros Island in the Bahamas last spring. It is currently 18" x 20", unquilted:
