SAQA One Foot Squares - Auction

The majority of us in Cut-Loose are also members of SAQA (Studio Art Quilt Associates). They have a benefit auction every year, in which members make one foot squares that are auctioned off on-line in September. Here are four squares from some members in Cut-Loose for this year's auction.

Cindy Cooksey's "Life's Little Detours"

Terry Waldron's "Their Strength"

Vickie Valdez-Green's The Regatta"

Jamie Fingal's Coffee on the House"
