March 2017 Quilt Day
Doors open at 8:15am, and the meeting begins at 9:15am. Quilt Day Cheat Sheet March 18 2017
Lecture by Mary Hogan: ADVENTURES IN STRING QUILTING
Adventures in String Quilting is a lecture/discussion/trunk show. String quilting can make use of leftovers, stash, unwanted UFOs, and of course, new fabrics. I use the term “string” to distinguish the irregular shapes welcomed in string piecing from the term “strip” which refers to precisely cut fabric – which can be obtained as precuts. I will discuss string quilting, particularly the many possibilities for creating design using simple arrangement of strings or highlighting certain parts of blocks. I’ve also explored many foundation types for string quilting and these will be discussed. Participants will leave the lecture with a new or renewed appreciation for the tradition of string piecing/quilting.
See Mary’s book “String Quilt Style.”
This lecture follows the business meeting on Quilt Day.
