SAQA Trunk Show

     I finished my piece for SAQA's Trunk Show.  The Trunk Show is literally just that. The quilts get mounted professionally and then put into a trunk and then travel to all sorts of guilds and venues for up to three years. If the artist wants to offer them for sale, they are put up for sale, if not, then they are returned to the artist at the end of the show. They all have to be 10" x 7" and they will premiere at the 2014 SAQA conference in Washington, DC, and then travel all across the United States and around the world. I got to see one of the trunk shows at our art group meeting one month and the quilts we saw were spectacular.
     Here's my contribution:
Resonating with the Universe
If you look back at its beginnings from the impromptu session ( Impromptu ), I ripped out much of the stitching and redid it to place the right elements on top. All of the stitching is done by hand (unusual for me) except for the yarns on the outer edge. Those are machine zigzagged on. (I never know how to spell that.) zig-zagged? zigzagged? zig zagged?  Please comment and correct me on the spelling. The computer spell check accepts all of them.
     I'm linking this to Off The Wall Friday where you can visit other art quilt blogs. Please make comments to let the artists know you stopped by.

  3. I zig zag over cording so I just say couched. I can spell that! And I agree with Janice--made up words are the best!

    1. I like to couch. One of these days, I should try doing it with a more fancy stitch. I like the words Janice used, too.

    1. Actually, any member of SAQA can participate. This show isn't juried. (Another reason to join.:))

  6. A very nice piece, Regina! I have to get going on mine. As for 'zig-zagged', that's how I spell it -- with a hyphen -- or as 2 words. It's a Canadian/UK thing, I think. People in the US run more words together than we do, so you could spell it 'zigzagged' and not freak out "Spell Check". ;-)
