We invite you to our gallery pages to see our art quilts
Happy holidays to all of you – a very blessed Christmas, happy Hanukkah – and we hope 2018 is a year of creativity and joy.
Jean completed a commissioned piece for her niece for her new home. It is from a photo taken of the Holy Family Shrine just southwest of Omaha, Nebraska on Interstate 80. The church was built as a roadside respite, therefore the title of the quilt, Roadside Respite.
For the first time in years, Jean is piecing kaleidoscope blocks to complete a quilt begun by a friend’s mother. Aileyn is also doing some traditional quilting, making baby quilts for church.
Aileyn’s A Pasture Poem will be included in Art Quilts, a dual region exhibit (SAQA SoCal/Nv and SAQA NorCal/Nv) shown at the California Heritage Museum in Santa Monica and again at the Carnegie Arts Center in Turlock. See dates to the left.
We each have pieces in a regional SAQA exhibit called Local Color. It’s an exhibit of our Northern California/Northern Nevada region and the Connecticut region together. It showed in Connecticut in July and August and will be in Folsom, California beginning in January 2018.
SAQA’s annual Benefit Auction is a major fundraiser each fall. Members made and donated 400+ 12 x 12 inch quilts to be reverse auctioned online. Below are the pieces Jean and Aileyn donated this year.
