We welcome you!
We invite you to go to our gallery pages to see our art quilts.
It’s been a busy summer of exhibitions for Aileyn and Jean. It’s a joy to share our art with the world. At one time we had 16 pieces showing a various venues. But it’s also nice to have them home for a while.
Jean just 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. And Aileyn is also doing some traditional quilting, making baby quilts for church.
Aileyn’s A Pasture Poem will be included in Art Quilts, a duel 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 going on right now. Members made and donated 400+ 12 x 12 inch quilts to be reverse auctioned online. To see the beautiful little quilts (and possibly bid on one) go to SAQA.com. Below are the pieces Jean and Aileyn donated this year.
