Art Quilts on Display

What a fun-packed time at IHQ today!
A short Quarterly Business Meeting, then on to a special trunk show by Sandra Mollon, an International professional instructor, and author.

Sandra lives in our own Calaveras County and is not a stranger to our guild. We look forward to her teaching a class in May on her art quilt technique.  Students in her class will be working on photographic images transformed into art quilts.

We will be working on an appliqued Lily similar to this one:

 

The walls of the main room were covered with gorgeous artwork  At first glance, many looked like photographs. Until you took a closer look and could see the intricate piecing and quilting.

Really Close Up

Since Sandra was here today we were able to book a different class for 2021. She will teach her Thread Painting technique that she used while making this artwork:

Thank you so much for sharing your art, Sandra!  We will see you back in May.

Quilter’s Will Resume August 19th…

Summer weather (100+ degrees), and summer break are here! Independence Hall will be converted into a Flea Market for the next 6 weeks, and IH Quilters will be helping out on the Tues and Thurs work days.

The last Row by Row Class (until Fall) was small in numbers but big in fun! Rows 7 & 8 are not paper piecing, so the grumbling was at a minimum. At least about paper piecing, Ha!

Although we all worked hard on our projects, we chatted, giggled, and enjoyed ourselves. Nothing unusual about that – our classes have that in common, no matter what we are trying to learn.

Because the photographer sculked around, quietly snapping pix, you can’t see that we all had smiles on our faces!

You will have to trust me on this…
