The Trunk Shows are collections of small quilted artworks, each 10 x 7 inches. The collections travel to venues in many countries over up to a three-year period. At the end of the tour, the quilt is either returned to the artist or sold through the SAQA store. The submission deadline for the 2017 Trunk Show is November 30th.
Several SAQA Atlantic Canada members have been producing pieces for the Trunk Show. We will be featuring their work over the coming days.

Early Frost by Holly McLean of Bathurst, New Brunswick
Most of my artwork stems from my wanderings along the beaches and trails in my area. There are always a myriad of things to inspire me in any season; no matter how many times I walk the same path, there is always something new to attract the eye. I’m drawn to the tiniest of interesting flora and fauna, to large vistas, to the lines and shadows produced by bare trees and their branches, to bird’s nests which become apparent in fall and winter. It is all endlessly fascinating and inspiring.
