Norma Mossburg Wins A Blue Ribbon!
Kudos to Norma Mossburg for winning first place for her wool applique “Fresh Cut” at the Sauder Village Quilt Show, May 2019. It was entered in the Small Quilt Mixed Technique category. Each block was appliqued, hand embroidered, and embellished with creative stitches. This Sue Spargo BOM design was also voted a People’s Choice award at the GAAQG Quilt Show last July. This quilt was a true labor of love.

In 2014, Maria Shell spent two months as an artist-in-residence at the McColl Center for Art + Innovation in Charlotte, North Carolina. While there, she worked weekly with a formerly chronically homeless community now living in Moore Place. By teaching basic sewing skills to the residents, she developed a relationship with the residents of Moore Place that eventually led to the making of a community quilt that celebrated the residents and their journey towards finding a home and a community. Since then, Maria has gone on to work with communities and organizations across the US helping them to also build quilts and share their stories.
Active GAAQG members can join us online via Zoom at our Quilt Day meeting on Saturday, November 21, 2020. The meeting will start promptly at 9:15 a.m. (you should join the Zoom meeting at 9:00). Maria’s lecture will begin after the business section of the meeting.
Instructions on how to join the meeting will be sent to active GAAQG members in November.
