Welcome to our seventh SAQA Spotlight Auction (Atlantic Canada) report. This tiny art quilt was generously donated by New Brunswick artist and teacher Kathy Tidswell.

Weeds n Things, by Kathy Tidswell, Burtts Corner NB

I played with using weeds and objects such as lace doilies to have fun and step outside my box. I used some of the prints in a recent quilt and quilted this little piece with Invisifil threads so as not to overpower the beauty of the print.
