Trunk Show Presentation

“That Was Then – This is Now”


Presentation is 1 hour


During the presentation, I will discuss my journey in quilting explaining my progress from a complete beginner with traditional quilting to developing my own  bargello designs, and then into Art Quilts and Competitions.
 
I will also expand on several processes of the bargello technique, how it evolves, and briefly explain color selection and placement.   Then, I will move on into my Competition pieces, and talk about my series of quilts that highlight “endangered species”, followed by some of my more recent Art Quilts that have been juried into many competitions winning awards at the National and International levels.

 

Trunk Show Presentation

“Quilts of Significance” –What makes these quilts so special?

Presentation is 1 hour


This presentation showcases moments in history that, I feel, are very profound.  I will exhibit 3 quilts, from my collection, each of which has a significant story. 

The first in this series is called “Women of Courage”, each block in this quilt is dedicated to a woman of courage, somebody who has made a significant impact on society.

The second in the series is called “Secrets & Shadows” where each block in the quilt is dedicated to a woman who contributed greatly to the war efforts of World War 11.

The third  quilt in the series is the story of  “ The Underground Railroad Quilt Codes”, what it is, how it worked, and what bearing the Quilt Codes had on the slaves who courageously escaped to freedom in the North.
