A Common Thread for the November Art Quilters

I am so excited to be working with a great team of Art Quilters to inspire you this month!  While our art quilts may vary in style, we have a unifying organization assisting us, we are all members of SAQA, Studio Art Quilt Associates. This is an international group that was organized to share, educate and promote studio art quilts.

You can find out more about SAQA by going to the website: http://www.saqa.com/

or by watching the following video at:  https://vimeo.com/209630346



All though I am a recent member to the group, I have benefited greatly. 


I have enjoyed participating and learning from the SAQA Seminars.  These interviews, webinars and articles are great sources of inspiration for me.  Not only do other artist generously share their knowledge and work, but they share tips and techniques.  It has inspired me in a variety of ways.

SAQA also gives me a great list of upcoming exhibits and call for entries that pertain to art quilts.  The struggle to find a venue has been one of the reasons I did not exhibit my work in the past.

This is my piece, The Promise of Spring.  It is currently in the SAQA Traveling Trunk Show.  It is a photo transferred piece that I use free-motion quilting techniques to enhance the motifs.

While I have yet to participate in a SAQA Conference or a Regional Meeting, I love that the opportunities exist and the information and newsletters that are shared about the events.

So I can't wait for you to meet the other members of the November Art Quilters team for 52 Quilters.  I am thankful for SAQA for bringing us together to work on this project to share our love for Art Quilts.
