Fishing by Barbara Watler
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….

Another lovely piece.
Poisoning Flint by Mary Vaneecke
Even I find this extraordinary – this is a quilt?
Video about SAQA
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.

Blue Fronds – fractal quilt by Rose Rushbrooke
My little Blue Fronds quilt went off to the Studio Art Quilt Associates traveling Trunk Show. An interesting experiment in de-construction resulting in 2 quilts from 1.
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.
My 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.
