Colorado Bridge by Sue Rasmussen
Sue Rasmussen, "A Desperate Housewife's Quilt Journey"
Thursday, May 7, 2015
A diversified quilt instructor since 1988, Sue Rasmussen loves to inspire her class participants to stretch beyond traditional confinements through quick methods of paper foundation piecing, machine-pieced landscapes and beautiful, intricate machine quilting. Sue has degrees in Textile Sciences and Agricultural Economics from the University of California, Davis, and has produced an extensive and varied body of work, including hundreds of quilts, quilt art and quilted clothing, many of which are nationally exhibited.
Her humorous presentation, showing dozens of Sue's quilts, takes you through her development as a quilt maker in the two main quilt styles that Sue loves and is known for: Intricate Pieced Quilts and Machine-Pieced Landscaped-Pictorial Quilts. Emphasizing her more recent quilts, Sue discusses several quilts in detail: the importance of design, color, fabric choices and quilting patterns. The lecture ends with several story quilts that are guaranteed to make you giggle.

Coming in June, Ann Shaw, with a presentation entitled "Line, Shape and Design".
