This is a Quilt

Here you can see my submission to "This is a Quilt", the 2011-2012 SAQA (Studio Art Quilt Associates) travelling trunk show. SAQA members were invited to submit a small quilt, that will be matted to 8", and the group of quilts will travel to educate the public about the art quilt in all its variations. This gave me a chance to experiment on a small scale with all those dying hosta fabrics I had posted photos of a few weeks ago. I was reminded again how much I really prefer to work larger, but it was a good experiment and had me moving into creating hosta foliage in fall colours because that is where I am hoping to go next with a larger piece.

On the subject of "Snow Dyeing" (my last post), if you are interested in a class on snow dyeing, my friend Pat Hardie
is teaching classes this winter out of her studio in Merrickville, Ontario.


  1. This is wonderful. I love the color, the style, the quilting. Amazing.
