Isn’t this lovely. I could definitely have it in my house. And seriously folks, this IS a quilt.

Have a look at the rest of the pieces on the Studio Art Quilt Associates webpage.

The exhibition is all about water – duh. Can’t imagine why an exhibition called H20h! would have anything to do with water….

The professional group I’ve belonged to for 20 years or so has produced a video about the association. This film includes member interviews PLUS beautiful artwork. Find out more about SAQA’s history and how the members get inspired to create.

SAQA Trunk Show 2014

Finally the SAQA 2014 Trunk Show has been put together, ready to tour the world for the next 3 years. I don’t even want to think how much work it takes to put together such a thing. 407 pieces of artwork, all needing mounting, sealing, and notating. Then they are packed and shipped in 8 different trunks. Unbelievable.

Subterranean Spiral - hybrid quiltMy piece Subterranean Spiral is part of Trunk G.

I like the idea these little quilts are ambassadors for the astonishing amount of technique, talent, and sheer passion of the SAQA members.

And you can request to have a trunk show sent to your guild, library, exhibition space or just to have as part of a group critique. Just email TrunkShow@saqa.com and ask for details.
