SAQA – Studio Art Quilt Associates
See the world from a new perspective! Birds, insects, and even some mammals are able to fly and soar. Plant seeds and kites are carried on the breeze, and the perfect pass can float through the air. Humankind has dreamt of ways to fly from Icarus’ attempt to create his own wings to the advent of airplanes, satellites, and space exploration. This exhibition provides new perspectives through which to see our world.

My Life as a Quilter – Men’s Edition

Michael Caputo
Michael’s love of using modern designs to showcase beautiful fabrics has been delighting quilters for nearly a decade. His quilting mother helped him create a quilt for a friend’s baby and a new medium for his artistic talents was born. Michael loves exploring combinations of color and pattern to create intriguing new designs. Eight years ago Quilt Now magazine published his first quilt design. Since then he has been featured in nearly every major quilting publication in the States, as well as magazines in the United Kingdom and France. Michael hopes you enjoy his journey from the occasional crafter to a published quilt designer.


Inspired by Endangered Species

Curated by Donna Marcinkowski DeSoto

This magnificent collection of 182 art quilts was inspired by the quote from Jim Fowler’s Wild Kingdom, “The continued existence of wildlife and wilderness is important to the quality of life of humans. Our challenge for the future is that we realize we are very much a part of the earth’s ecosystem, and we must learn to respect and live according to the basic biological laws of nature.”



"Ice Dyed Baby” Challenge
Handi Quilter
The “Ice Dyed Baby” Challenge features ice-dyed fabric from Debra Linker, Texas. Handi Quilter commissioned her to create 50 unique pieces that were offered to Handi Quilter educators to quilt in a way to emphasize the symmetry of the mandala design. All quilts were finished with a faced edge, rather than an attached binding. They have been featured in American quilting magazines and have hung in the Handi Quilter Gallery in Salt Lake City, Utah.
