Last spring, I traveled with several friends to La Grange, Texas, to see Sue Benner's solo show at the Texas Quilt Museum. I love Sue's work, and I was especially taken with her new series, "Spotted Plaid." A little over a month ago I had the opportunity to buy a small piece in the series -- Spotted Plaid 4. And so of course, I did!

I always buy at least one quilt in the SAQA Benefit Auction, which helps fund SAQA's exhibition programs by selling quilts donated by members. This year I bought a piece by one of my favorite quilts artists, Karen Schulz. Karen and I met at the Crow Barn several years ago, and were both in the Visions 2014 exhibit in San Diego. Her work is bold, colorful and very graphic, and I admire it a great deal.
