Alliance for American Quilts launches auction series


On September 18, The Alliance for American Quilts will launch a series of ongoing weekly auctions on eBay. 100% of the final sale price benefits The Alliance for American Quilts, an organization dedicated to the recognition and preservation of American quilting. The inaugural auction begins at 10:00 pm PDT on Sunday September 18 and ends on Sunday September 25 at 10:00 pm PDT. This auction will include quilts, vintage fabric from the 1880's, and out-of-print books that document America's love affair with quilts.

Some highlights from the opening auction:

- "Jackie O Auction" by RIVA, a quilt by former quilt artist Ruth Reynolds. Ruth is well known in the quilt world for her hilarious cartoon character RIVA from the RIVA Series.

- An exceptional early American (1835-40) Tumbling Stars quilt with floral border and tape binding.

- "Quilts: A Living Tradition" by Robert Shaw in its original shrink wrap. This out-of-print book, published in 1995, has a 5-star rating on Amazon.com.
