This year's Sacred Threads Quilts challenge and special exhibition was called "Eye Contact: Creating a Connection." Curator Barbara Kirkpatrick Hollinger explains her motivation for the theme in this Go Tell It! interview from the Quilt Alliance.

What a wonderful concept for a quilt , quilting connections! The message is so relevant since so many people are so absorbed in their own orbits, I wonder if people remember there is a world out there and not to miss it. Congratulations on such a timely and unique message! I hope the message spreads and spreads! Greet people, look at them, don't isolate yourself!

This is an eye-opener! Reminds me to make better eye contact in my community and the exhibit is awesome. A wonderful, inspiring challenge- quilting and day to day living in the world.

I love this display and what it stands for. I cannot agree with you more. I look people in the eye and say hello whether I know them or not and many times this makes them smile, so there is sunshine in this world.
