SAQA Trunk Show

Earlier in the year I sent off my entry 'Orange Blocks' to SAQA's 25th Anniversary Trunk Show.
Orange Blocks

The quilts are only 7" by 10" and have been mounted onto a black backing board. There are about 400 quilts divided into 8 trunks, my entry appears in Trunk D.

Each trunk then travels to various regions worldwide for a couple of years. 


An earlier trunk show was shown last year at the Taupo Symposium and also at Aotearoa Quilter's 2013 exhibition.  The quilts were still small but different dimension.

The trunk shows provide an opportunity to see art work by well known international artists (and unknowns!)  that you probably wouldn't see unless you travelled to major shows in the US.
