New Trunk Show Pieces

Two more quilts have been added to our Trunk Show since our meeting last fall. The Trunk Show now has 15 pieces and is big enough to start looking for smaller venues like libraries and quilt shows for exhibition. It can also travel to local guilds (along with myself) at their meetings. If you know of a guild who would like me to bring the Trunk Show or a local library who might be interested in a small exhibit let Nancy or Allison know.

Sue Polansky

Sue's Conversation was created for SAQA MA/RI Region's Trunk Show from unused elements left over from a previous quilt. Look for this grouping of people, although slightly smaller, in When Time Runs Out on her website.

Goldfish #4
Tricia Deck

Taken from a photograph of goldfish bags for sale while traveling in China, Tricia has created a series of quilts highlighting this amazing array of colors and shapes. The fourth in a series, her challenge was to convey the shape of the bag in fabric and show the reflection of light.

Submission details for the trunk show:
Each piece must be 9”x 11” - unbound please as the edges will not be visible and the piece will be mounted on matboard.  Please keep any dimensional embellishments at least 1" from the edges.  Include a one page (8 1/2” x 11” sheet of paper) artist statement that has your name, the title of the piece, materials and techniques used and any contact information or other information about the piece you wish to include.   Please also email a copy of this statement to Nancy at
