BPQ Program Thursday September 5
This is an inspirational and informative slide-show and lecture starting with my first fabric experiments of more than twenty years ago, in which I began to combine fabric and art. I believe these early projects led to the fabric collage method that began in 1990. The slide lecture traces this progression of my quilts to the present day, with insights and stories for each. The step-by-step development of a piece is shown, from the original inspiration to the finished wall hanging. I share techniques and hints for design, fabric selection, construction, borders and quilting. To accompany the slide presentation, I display a selection of quilts, allowing viewers to examine completed pieces and to see up-close how my techniques are applied. A question and answer period follows.
