For Stretching Art and Tradition 19, Under Scrutiny; Pick a subject: an idea, a plant, a belief, a pattern, an insect, and examine it in great detail. Enlarge, drill down, zoom in! This year, complete a quilt 18" wide by 36" long (our poll had this as the most popular size) using any technique you choose to examine your subject. Your quilt must come with a 4" standard show sleeve attached and a label on the back with your name, address, and title.

As always, we challenge participants to honor SAT’s origins by identifying an area or technique of fiber arts that you would like to explore and incorporate that in your piece.  If you would like to join us, please join our Yahoo group!
