Quilts to raise money, quilts to raise awareness, quilts to comfort, quilts to memorialize…Service projects have given me some profound experiences. I will share personal images and stories of many touching projects, along with strategies for people who wish to take on projects of the heart. Slide show and trunk show.
Travel has taken me as far east as Yerevan Armenia, west to Thailand’s Similan Islands, I’ve seen glaciers in Alaska and Chile…And wouldn’t you know it, my favorite quilt to make is the Trip Around the World. This is a demo/lecture/trunk show where I show the tricks of making my favorite quilt with its beautiful surprising results and share a few tales from my favorite spots in the world.
This topic can be formatted as a one hour demo with a digital-projection-based demonstration of the basic techniques I used to create my Queen of hearts quilt and how to use these techniques to create many more appliqué quilts.
We can enjoy a hands-on workshop where participants will master several styles of hand applique in a three hour session.
Or...Why not both?
