Helena's work accepted to the National Quilt Museum!

Many congratulations to 12 by the Dozen member Helena Scheffer, whose donation to SAQA's next Trunk Show has been selected for the permanent collection of the National Quilt Museum in Paducah, Kentucky. Jurors were B.J. Adams and Trudi Van Dyke.

I attended the SAQA conference in Alexandria, Virginia last week, and it was such a treat to see the 400-plus Trunk Show contributions, each measuring 10" x 7". The standard of work was very impressive, so Helena's piece was in very good company.

Helena, please post a photo of this gorgeous "colour explosion" for all to enjoy!


  1. I am humbled to be in such august company. Congratulations Helena. That is such an honour.


  2. Congratulations Helena! All the more reason for a trip to Paducah!

  3. Wow, what an honour! Congratulations Helena!
