We will be accepting submissions from April through the end of June, with a final receive by deadline of July 12th. Please do not ship your work until the submission form opens on April 1st.

Questions? Please email us at auction@saqa.com.

Auction Quilt Requirements
  • Donations MUST be 12” x 12”. All embellishments and/or hanging methods must be within the 12” x 12” size. Only ONE work per artist will be accepted. 
  • All artwork donated must be ready to hang. This can include a sleeve, corner pockets, or attached loops/rings.
  • Artwork on stretcher bars will be accepted but may not be any larger than 12” x 12” after mounting and should be no deeper than 1 inch (2.5 cm) after mounting. Artwork on stretchers must have hooks and wire attached for hanging.
  • All donations must have a label on the back, with the title (or "untitled") and artist's name clearly written.
Digital Image Requirements

When you complete your submission form, you have the option to include a digital image (jpg format) of your quilt. This image should be good quality: evenly lit, in focus, no smaller than the preferred size of 1200 x 1200 pixels. Files should be no large than 3mb (the online form has a size limit).

Please take the picture on a contrasting color to your edges (pure white works best but use black or dark grey for lighter pieces). A large piece of posterboard makes the perfect background (unlike wood floors, carpet and tables). This will ensure your image looks its best when displayed on the website.

While a photo is not required, we do strongly encourage that you include one as we use these for social media promotion (and this assists in identifying quilts without labels).
