August 1, 2020 Tina Curran

Saturday Quarterly Meeting with TIna Curran at 10:00AM. Our regularly scheduled quarterly meeting will take place virtually via Zoom teleconferencing.
Newly elected president Marianne Simpson will conduct the meeting. There will be our normal "Quilters' Showcase", so get those quilts ready to show!.
Tina will narrate her PowerPoint presentation on "My Design Process - From Concept to Quilt". Tina says "The idea for this talk came to me because so often when I present quilts that I have made, I am asked something to the effect of, "Did that come out of your head?".  Like music composition is to me, I like the end product but would have no idea where to start.  And this is the same challenge to many quilter makers.  The purpose of this talk is to share my process, step by step, and the sometimes linear, sometimes circuitous path I take to end up with my quilt designs, highlighting the inspirations and obstacles that pop up along the way.  My hope is that this talk will demystify the process for others and encourage them to start designing their own quilts.  Examples from several of my designs are included."
A link to the Zoom meeting and presentation will be emailed to all WQ members.

Add beads of all shapes and sizes to your quilts and wearable art, easily and after you are done quilting. Here's the prize: no knots or mess on the back!

Students will create a small fabric flower collage on batting and learn different beading techniques such as solid line bead embroidery, attaching bugle beads, and creating a beaded bezel used to attach a cabochon to the fabric's surface. Use your own beads and materials or order a kit ($30.00 plus shipping) which includes all the materials from Lyric at least two weeks before the workshop. The workshop will be held on the Zoom platform. A link will be sent to particpants before the workshop. Supply List. Workshop Fee:$45.00. Download a Workshop Registration Form.
