SACRAMENTO — A dozen quilts are already hanging in Sutter Medical Center, Sacramento’s Buhler Specialty Pavilion in preparation of the 2017 Quilt Auction that benefits Sutter Cancer Center’s breast cancer treatment programs and services.

Some of the quilts hanging in the lobby of the Buhler Specialty Pavilion, 2800 L St.

During the month of October, the walls of the seven-story Buhler building will be covered with quilts, and with 500 works to be displayed, they will surely spill over to other facilities on the Sutter Medical Center campus. On Nov. 4, a live auction will be held for 50 of the best pieces and the silent auction will end for the other quilts.

The Quilt Auction is held every three years, and more than $650,000 has been raised through the auctioning of 3,000 quilts in the past six auctions.

The fabric artworks are donated by quilters throughout the Sacramento region and beyond, and all of them will be newly made and are quilted, not just tied.

For details on the Quilt Auction, or to donate a quilt, go to www.suttermedicalcenter.org/quiltauction/. The public is invited to view the quilts; the Buhler Specialty Pavilion is located at 2800 L St. in midtown Sacramento.
