We Have a Winner!


Quilt Canada, the highlight of the year for the Canadian Quilters' Association, is -- as most of you know -- on now in Vancouver.

And this morning, via Facebook, SAQA WC member Terry Aske of B.C. has shared the first *win* that has come across my awareness!


CONGRATS, Terry, for winning the TrendTex Challenge with her piece, Tally to Thirty. For those of you who don't (yet) follow Terry's blog...she's written about making this piece HERE.


Tally to Thirty - Terry Aske, 2018

Now...I know that Quilt Canada's National Juried Show has been a showcase for SAQA members' winning art in recent years...so please, more of you!  Brag on yourselves -- or let me do it for you by e-mailing me particulars, photos, links or whatever details you choose to share with your SAQA colleagues.

Remember that this blog is followed by other Canadian SAQA members, and by many colleagues in the U.S. and overseas.  Let's share our successes!
