Welcome to the Quilting Arts TV Blog Hop!
I am excited to help kick off this weeklong blog hop with the other guests for Series 1400. Just in time too - because tonight I'll be flying to Frankfurt and then Johannesburg - on Carolyn Mazloomi's tour group to the International Quilt Convention Africa. (speaking at the convention July 26)
In my QA TV segment, I show the fundraiser fabric collection "Urban Textures" for SAQA (Studio Art Quilt Association). Susan Brubaker-Knapp was enthusiastic on her first day of the shoot in her new role as Quilting Arts TV host. I felt it was such an honor to work with her on that first day!
Last year we put out a call to SAQA members for artwork to be considered for a fabric collection which would be produced by Andover Fabrics. From 209 entries, we chose 6 artists' work to be translated into a collection of 18 pieces.
You can see the collection on the Andover website at:
The 6 artists are:
Janice Paine Dawes
Congratulations to the 6 winning artists, and many thanks to all of the artists who submitted the original 209 artworks.
This collection was created to be a fundraiser for SAQA, so all royalties from the sale of this collection will go directly 100% to SAQA.
