ART QUILT CHALLENGE

A reminder that the Evening Star Quilters ART QUILT CHALLENGE is due at the January meeting.  Remember, art quilts are subjective in nature and an expression of the maker.  ... if you think it’s ART, then it’s ART.  The minimum size is larger than  225 square inches ( 15x15)  but can be any shape or dimension.   No maximum size limits.  

Speaking of Art Quilts, have you ever visited the Studio Art Quilt Associates website? You can find it at http://www.saqa.com/ .  SAQA was started byYvonne Porcella in 1989, and it has grown since then to “become an even greater resource and advocate for all of the SAQA membership.”

Locally, the Michigan Quilt Artists Invitational exhibit is preparing for their last exhibit with the theme of “Art of the Kitchen.
