Cottonwood Quilt Shop with refreshments Friday evening. Our thanks go to Mary Humphrey, owner, for providing that treat. Attendees chose among 4 workshops or Come Quilt with Me sit and sew when they registered. Elizabeth is now the Programs coordinator, and chose well on the class selections for her first meeting.
Karen DuMont of Richmond (Karrie Patch Designs) taught One Easy Block...Sew Many Quilts to show how one block can be cut in different ways to create at least 6 different layout options. There was such variety going on in this class. Here's a picture from show and tell at the end of the day.
Dan Springs Collection. We used a photo that Cathy provided and a technique she adapted from Annette Kennedy to interpret the photo in fabric. Working in a small size to learn the process, the technique can then be adapted to larger and more detailed photos. Cathy is on the right with her completed quilt.
website. We still have openings in classes with Rayna Gillman and Victoria Findlay Wolfe! If you are a quilter in Virginia who is not a member of VCQ, come check us out. You don't have to be a member to attend a meeting or the retreat. Hope to see you soon!
