A zinger is defined: a sudden shock, revelation, or turn of events.

I think there is much power in a well-placed zinger. I first discovered they had a name when a friend and I were gushing over the quilts of Gee's Bend. Now, I look for subtle ways to include zingers in my work. I think of zingers as my gift to the viewer - a chance to make their heart race or ask questions.

Gee's Bend Quilt zinger....

A zinger I like to use is the upsidedown bird....
