Over the moon with SAQA

Staircase to the Moon, May 2014
100 percent cotton fabric, hand-dyed, paper pieced, free motion quilted

TA-DAAA! I just sent off this lunar-themed abstract art quilt to SAQA - as my donation to the 2014 SAQA Benefit Auction.

WHAT IS SAQA? www.saqa.com
SAQA stands for Studio Art Quilt Associates, a nonprofit, worldwide organization to promote the art quilt and the artists who create them.

I joined SAQA just recently to immerse myself more fully in the art quilt world, to learn, grow, and advance as an artist.
