Call for Entry
Call for Entry Deadline

Each SAQA Journal has two pages displaying members' quilts related to a specific theme. Please only send images for the current call/theme!


Along came a ...

This Member Gallery theme invites you to tell a story about a surprising turn of events. Did a spider block your path? Did your princess find her prince? Did a dye bath yield opportunities for a stunning piece? Let us "read" what broke your heart or made your spirit soar.  

Submission Guidelines

Images will be chosen on the basis of artistic merit as well as photo quality. To improve your chances of being selected, send only your best photos and use the same considerations you would for entering a juried show, which means sharp focus, even lighting, no extraneous hands or feet or garage doors showing in the photo, etc. 

Photos should be in sharp focus, well lit with correct color, and no distortions. The quilt should be the only item visible in the image other than a flat white, black, or gray background. All edges of the work should be visible; do not crop into the edge of the quilt. Images should be a minimum of 1800 pixels on the longest side (larger is fine).  

Label the file with your last name followed by partial title (example: smith_dreamingtrees.jpg).
