On the Auction Block – “Elemental Symbols” art quilt

I made this 11.5″ x 27.5″ quilt as part of a challenge based on the word “symbol.”  The colored triangles and the quilting lines within them are both symbols of fire, air, earth, and water.

On the Auction Block – Quilted Coasters

Up for auction this week is a set of 4 quilted cotton coasters. I started making fabric coasters when my toddler started playing with the breakable ones I used to have. These can be tossed around the room without damaging anything. They can also be tossed in the washer if drinks spill on them or they become teething rings.

On the Auction Block – Quilted Napkin Rings

Up for auction this week is a set of 8 quilted cotton napkin rings.  These are reversible with an interior fabric of blue flowers on a white background. What I love about these napkin rings is that they are also machine washable!

On the Auction Block – Circles Art Quilt

Up for auction this week is a piece called “Circles” that began as a photo on cloth of a pink bleeding heart plant.  I distorted the image by cutting it into circles of various sizes, which I then appliqued onto a black cotton background. I brought more color and balance to the piece by hand quilting additional circles in hot pink thread.

On the Auction Block – Quilted Tea Cozy

Tea cozies frustrate me. Most require tying little strings or lifting the cozy off every time you pour so I designed a new one. No little strings, no need to pull it off,  just Velcro® once and pour.

The cozy is lined with batting and quilted to keep your tea warm with sewn-on Velcro® tabs that close snugly over a standard 6-cup tea pot. (Tea pot not included).

On the Auction Block – Rainbow Strips

As you read in my post on Thursday, I’ve been thinking a lot lately about art and commodity exchange and have decided to try an experiment. If my art is a gift and not a commodity, then I can’t put a price on it. So, I’m going to post one piece of art a week for a 72-hour auction on eBay. We’ll see what happens. Each piece goes on the block Monday at 9 AM ET. If you’d like a reminder email, you can sign up here.

The first piece, “Rainbow Strips” is up for auction now.
