Asheville, NC is home to the Alliance for American Quilts.

This organization was formed 15 years ago to document, and preserve the history of quilts and their makers.  Settle down with a cup of coffee (no make that a pot) and explore their easy to navigate, updated informative and inspiration filled website. 

"Four Sided Journey" by Yvonne Porcella

To celebrate their anniversary, a generous group of 67 quilters have donated small quilts such as the one above which will be auctioned on ebay Oct. 30- Nov. 19, 2008.  The proceeds will benefit worthy AAQ projects.   Preview the quilts and consider bidding to show your support.
