The SAQA Traveling Trunk pieces are all 7" x 10", mounted on black mats enclosed in plastic bags for protection during travel over three years. The packages include the artist statement and details of the techniques and materials used to create the individual art works. Following the three year Trunk Show schedule for travel to SAQA Regions, Galleries and special events around the world, these 50 quilts will move to the permanent collection at the National Quilt Museum in Paducah, Kentucky.
Special thanks to all of our SAQA Central Canada members who created their small quilts and donated them for the Trunk Show Program. They will bring the joy and excitement of fibre art to many around the world.
