Season after Season (SAQA Global - All members) More Info
Texas Quilt Museum

Our lives are measured in seasons. Not just the familiar quarterly divisions of a year: spring, summer, fall and winter, but with each new day we move among a variety of seasons. Seasons are temporary markers of the passing of time, helping us transition naturally through the changes of our lives. Artists are encouraged to explore and illustrate the seasons of their lives or the changes reflected in the seasons of the world in which they live.  ** artists have been notified

Throughout history people have been forced to flee from their homes for their own safety and survival due to war, oppression, natural disasters, and atrocious human rights violations.

Quilt Festival Houston 2019
