Above, as Karen describes her quilt and process for the Road Kill project, others got a laugh at her found objects and title.
ARTAAfacts this month recognizes Nancy DiDonato for her article in the February/March 2010 issue of Quilters Newsletter magazine. "Pin Woven Fabric" was the easy lesson for that issue. Three of Nancy's quilts are shown in the magazine: "Lake View", "Fish in Space", and "Click II".

The group was organized in 2005 by six women who wanted to share their interest and experiences with the art quilt. The membership soon grew to 20 with some changes along the way.
ARTAA has already enjoyed several large displays of our work at venues such as the Adirondack Museum at Blue Mountain Lake, the Widlund Gallery at North Creek, the Wings Falls Quilt Guild bi-annual shows, the Guilderland Library, and the Shirt Factory of Glens Falls. Members sometimes show random, individual efforts (as at Spring Street)..... and at other times, thrive on the interpretation of a theme - such as our 2009 "Road Kill" project (below), a spoof on found objects that were incorporated into the artquilts. The road kill show was inventively displayed and well received!
