SAQA Auction Piece is Sold!!


This quilt sized 12 x 12 was my donation to the Studio Art Quilt Associates 2011 Auction. I call it "The Woman with Copper Hair."  I have been a member of this art quilt group for two yrs. + and thought it would be nice to donate a piece for their yearly auction which raises money for thier educational events. A lovely individual from Mountain View CA purchased my little lady and the woman with copper hair lives far from me in California.

The first part of the auction is done and Section 2 begins on Monday Sept. 19th. This is the website to access the

I would like to share my good news of me now being a PAM (Professional Artist Membership) which I had to apply for through the SAQA webiste. I did this in March and was not accepted. They didn't care for the borders on several of my quilts. I thought about what they said and I agreed and the majority of my new work has no borders. I reapplied in August with newer/borderless art quilts and I was accepted. This is a competitive thing for me that doesn't mean much to many outside of this group but I wanted it bad!!


  1. Congrats, Laurie! First on selling your SAQA piece to help the organization and for becoming a PAM member!!! good for you!

  2. Congrats on becoming a PAM! I was also denied this year, but probably won't attempt again until next Spring. My denial was based on my not having a cohesive body of work. Oh well!!

  3. Congratulations to you, Laurie! I've been wanting to become a PAM very badly also! Unfortunately I was denied this Spring due to lack of cohesive style. Bum-mer... I will try again next year. Good job, woman, you have been achieving many wonderful things this past year! Good for you!!!
