One of the benefits of being a member of SAQA Connecticut is the chance to meet with all the other talented artists in our group. We like to meet in person several times a year because there are some things that simply can’t be experienced on line.
Sometimes you’ll get to talk to an artist who is almost never heard from on line because they don’t have their work displayed on websites or blogs; they may not have much use for email. But once in a while you are lucky enough to see their work in person, something truly wonderful and unexpected. Such is the case of Sally Brown and her lovely quilt book “Forever Sisters”. (book cover shown upper left)
Spanning more than 8 feet when unfolded, this was a labor of love for Sally, who added handwritten notes and personal photos by scanning them and printing them onto fabric. The double-sided pages were then quilted and attached together so that they fold up accordion-style and fit into a unique handmade case. (case shown top right)
