IIDANY | Sustainable Quilt Auction

The auction took place last night and by all accounts it was a huge success. The venue was sold out, again, and the vibe was very festive. All the teams outdid themselves and I can only imagine what will be dreamed up next year. As a little background the Sustainable Quilt Auction was formed 6 years ago as a way for the architecture + design community in New York to get together, much like traditional quilting bees, and explore their creativity in ways they don’t do usually get a chance to do 9-5. The house rules state that the quilts must be queen size or better and made from discontinued fabric from our industry, thus re-purposing what would have ended up in a land fill. Below are images of all the quilts. In advance, please excuse my poor photography.

Much thanks to The Open House Gallery for a wonderful venue, and also to Abigail, Suzette, Miguel and Brian without whom this never would have happened.
