Section 1 is open for bidding this week

Starting Monday September 17th, only Section 1 quilts will be available for bidding, starting at $750 and further reduced throughout the week to a final price of $100. Prices change each day at 2pm EDT (GMT -4).

Interested in adding a piece to your collection? Plan your bidding strategy by reviewing our Auction FAQs. But don’t wait too late or your favorites might be gone by the end of the week.

We always love hearing about how our members are inspired so we asked our auction artists to share some stories behind the creation of their pieces.  We heard from the members below (click on their image to read more) AND we compiled another list of shorter stories. All their pieces are included in Section 1 and are available for bidding!
