I have actually returned from QuiltCon, kept in Pasadena CA, from Feb 22-25. I was standing for Workshop Art Quilt Associates (SAQA), a non-profit subscription organization that is passionate concerning the art patchwork. So why was SAQA (an art quilt-focused company) at QuiltCon, the Modern Quilt Guild show– which is all about the modern patchwork?

SAQA defines the art quilt as a “an innovative aesthetic work that is split and also stitched or that references this type of sewn split framework.” From SAQA’s point of view, this includes modern patchworks! SAQA is trying to damage down the obstacles of categorizing art quilts as different than modern quilts. If they are original jobs, they are ART (as well as the quilt manufacturers are musicians).

SAQA had a booth in the non-profit area to engage with the quilt show visitors. We had one of our trunk programs which are 50 little 6″ x 8″ artworks that reveal examples of our participants’ job. The trunk program was eye sweet that brought people right into the cubicle. You can see a section of the SAQA trunk show in the image above as I posture with QuiltCon participants Joyce, Jone as well as Bernice. From there we could talk about our mission and also advantages to membership– like our stellar magazines, education, and exhibition programs.

Furthermore, we had an Unique Display called “Modern Inspirations: Art Quilts from the 1970s Through Today.” This exhibit demonstrated how patchwork artists from the early days of the art patchwork movement in the 1970s were operating in the abstract as well as geometric style. The contemporary quilt motion that started in the mid-2000’s improved the successes and visual of earlier musicians. Imagined over, Maria Shell, author of Improv Jumble, holds the exhibit catalog.

Daisy Aschehoug postures with her patchwork in the SAQA booth. Sissy was a member of the QuiltCon 2018 professors and has actually had a variety of patchworks published in magazines such as Modern Quilts Unlimited, Love Patchwork as well as Quilting, and also Modern Jumble.

Nancy Bavor, a previous SAQA Board Member as well as presently the Director of the San Jose Quilts as well as Textiles Gallery, provided a patchwork background lecture about the art patchwork activity which started in the 1960s. Nancy revealed the influences of the modern art motion in the early days of the patchwork rebirth, and just how the trends proceed today of current art influenceinh patchwork making designs.

I was on the QuiltCon professors and performed three “prior to hrs” gallery walks through all the special displays, to include the SAQA Modern Inspirations, and the AIDS Patchwork, Carolyn Friedlander’s highlighted artist job, and also MQG Quilts of the Month. It was a great experience to spend a hr with 35 visitors and to educate about curation, design, SAQA and the power of patchworks in activism as well as healing.

QuiltCon is a wonderful program full of amazing initial masterpieces, exciting suppliers, talks and also workshops: check out a list of the 2018 champions.
