From the Contemporary QuiltArt Association:

Contemporary QuiltArt Association (CQA) of Washington takes this opportunity to work Big! With Schack Art Center’s ample wall space + some BIG creative Ideas + our Little 12”x12” Affordable Art quilts, we’ve curated an engaging display for Schack’s Holiday Exhibit 2020. Enjoy the larger works created by CQA artists, but don’t stop there. Each artist was asked to create a BIG work for display and a 12” x 12” small piece. (Hint: they’re SO collectible!) Find that special handmade holiday gift for someone else or yourself—and give your local Arts Non-Profits some love!

About the Contemporary QuiltArt Association

Founded in 1986, Contemporary QuiltArt Association (CQA) is an all-volunteer, 501(c)(3) non-profit arts organization comprising more than 100 artists in Washington state who are bound by their relationship to fiber art.

CQA's goals are to:

* educate the public and promote interest in the contemporary art quilt

* encourage both public and private collecting of the contemporary art quilt, and

* encourage and support contemporary quilt artists

As a group, CQA members are diverse in their design styles, choices of media and working techniques. The artists are not restricted by traditional definitions of quilting, but instead express thoughts and feelings through the medium of quilting. Materials used often go far beyond the traditional idea of cloth, and the resulting art pieces can range from postcard size to works that fill a wall—or even be three-dimensional. The only constant is that CQA members continue to expand the definition of the art quilt, especially as new materials and techniques are developed.
