SAQA Benefit Quilt

Mellow Yellow

This is my quilt for the annual SAQA Benefit Auction held every September. You can read all about it  and how the bidding works here. All quilts are twelve inches square and there are some fabulous pieces available. General bidding starts on September 16. The quilts were broken down into three groups and my quilt is in Group 3, which starts bidding on Oct. 3 to Oct. 9.

I quite like this color palette and am thinking of making a much bigger quilt using the same palette. Now I have to order some more Dupioni silks in yellow. The rest will be my hand-dyed.

I'm linking up with Off the Wall Friday.

Did you ever meet Rhoda Cohen? When she was admiring a friend's artwork, no matter the palette chosen, she would start with "I love the yellow." Sometimes the yellow was a bit player. Sometimes it was even non-existent. She was drawn to warmth and glow. Your piece shimmers. Rhoda would love it.

Your color selection is masterful. This piece dances. Love it!

Oh I like it too. And the little chipmunk with the tomato in his hot little hands

Yellow is my favorite color so I really like this!! I bet it sells fast when that auction starts.
