Salli McQuaid's  “Out of My Inner Mind: Manipulation of the Thread"  premiered at Mossrock Fine Art Gallery, The Woodlands (Houston),TX, Nov. 7- 30, 2015. This art quilt exhibition extended the nearby Houston International Quilt Festival (IQF), perhaps the largest in the world, 

Out of My Inner Mind was a particularly challenging series of work," McQuaid said. “After acquiring a computer-driven long-arm machine, I had to master the software. From there, I learned to manipulate standard quilt thread patterns to deepen and enhance the already pieced images. 

“The pieced images came to me in a spontaneous, intuitive flow, as did the finishing quilt-stitching manipulations,” she added. Quilt patterns were resident in Quilt Magician software and others were purchased from IntelligentQuilting.com.
