May’s meeting brought two special guests – Tricia Royal of Bits and Bobbins
brought a beautiful trunk show of her work and to discuss her evolution as a quilter and her ideas and process.
Tricia spoke at length about how she is submersed in surface design and dying using reclaimed fabric. Most inspiring were her thoughts on quilting as art and her dedication to portraying her own perspective and aesthetic. Thank you Tricia for visiting us!
We also hosted Julie from the Intrepid Thread who brought stacks of lovely fabrics for us to drool over.
As ever, we had a beautiful display of our talented members in sew and tell.
Renee’s block was won by Judy from the Block of the Every Other Month Club. This beautiful block was chosen by the Modern Quilt Guild as part of their block study for 2018.
Pam Rocco’s quilt is a variation on the Cogs block.
Lori made a quilt in Karen’s workshop on Improv Abstraction. We are so excited to see Karen teaching and we are lucky to have Karen teaching for our guild later this year.
Here is one of Karen’s quilts
Fabulous improv quilt with solids by Terry
Mo made this fabulous quilt in a workshop with Tara Faughnan.
Pictures do not do this postage stamp quilt justice. The visual impact is stunning.
Come to our next meeting on June 5 at 6:30 for more visual inspiration and friendship. This month, we will be giving our partners our tote bags or zipper pouches. Swap meetings are the best – we can’t wait to see what you all have made for each other. The swap will start promptly at 6:30. See you then!
