Featured Speaker

Acclaimed Textile and Applique' Artist

Laurel Anderson

 

Laurel Anderson is an award winning gifted textile artist. Born and raised on the West Coast, Laurel is well known in the San Francisco Bay area
as an accomplished appliqué quilt designer. Her quilt designs featured on her website www.Whispercolor.com are inspired by her love of
nature as seen in her flower and natural landscape designs which include trees and mountains. She uses a mix of color, pattern and textures.

The name Whisper Color describes the technique Laurel uses to dye silk scarves. Laurel loves dyeing fabrics including silk scarves, wool and
bamboo batting. Her work has been seen at West Coast quilt and guild shows. When her sons started school she joined a local
quilting group that made quilts for the Richmond Rescue Mission. They made the mistake of complimenting her on her use of color.
With that encouragement she thought she could try making quilts for her family. It took three to get her hooked.

Laurel loves hand and machine appliqué, and prefers flowers and natural landscapes that include trees and mountains.
She is best known for her complimentary mix of color, pattern and texture.

Laurel will also be teaching a workshop on Friday, August 15.
