Melms in Seasonal Palette at International Quilt Festival

The SAQA special exhibit 'Seasonal Palette' will be on display at the International Quilt Festival in Houston, TX, November 1-4. Diane Melms was selected as one of 32 artists to create a piece for this show. Her artwork entitled 'Behold' was made to express Autumn, that brief interlude as glorious colors signal the change of seasons. She has documented the process for creating this piece on her blog.

This exhibit will travel to several other venues including International Quilt Festival exhibits in Cincinnati, Ohio, April 2013 and Long Beach, California, July 2013 and others.  Congratulations, Diane!
