Light the World (SAQA Global - ALL members)More Info
European Patchwork Meeting, Sainte-Marie-Aux-Mines, France 2021

Light is our primary tool for perceiving and understanding the world around us. Without light there is no vision. Light allows us to appreciate the world through shape and form and evokes emotions. Common qualities of light are intensity, quality, color, direction, distribution, texture and movement. Artists are encouraged to explore how light creates and transforms your art.


Connections (SAQA Global - ALL members)More Info
Quilt Festival Houston 2021

In today's fractured, divisive world, connections - both intentional and accidental - are more important than ever. We are bound by love, rituals, family and faith. We are also connected to our past, our community - near and far, and to nature. To be connected is to find commonalities with others.


Microscape (SAQA Global - ALL members)More Info
Quilt Festival Houston 2021

Our known world stretches far beyond what we can see with the unaided eye. Microscopes, magnifying glasses, and virtual imaging techniques reveal a world of great beauty and complexity. That world contains the smallest particles, tiniest organisms, smallest landscape or natural details and can provide us with an abundance of artistic inspiration.
