Topic: Hard Edges in a Soft Medium.  Architectural Art Quilts

A PowerPoint presentation about the challenges of interpreting architectural structures with fabric and thread – making them look solid and three-dimensional by using perspective and value. I will show many examples of my architectural art quilts, and explain how I design and create them.

May 28: AGM, Black and White Challenge Reveal

Date: May 28, 6:45pm

Our Annual General Meeting is spiced up with Baby Shower donations and show and tell of the Presidents Black and White quilt challenge.

Baby Shower items hand made or purchased go to the Richmond Hospital maternity ward for families that need extra help when the baby arrives.  Sizes newborn to 18 months.

The President’s Challenge this year encourages us to design a quilt that is mostly black and white.  A little colour is permitted.  It is always inspiring to see what has been created.
