We will take yardage and make it interesting and then create a small log cabin quilt top to show ways to incorporate traditional patterns into a more contemporary aesthetic.

lukeThe next day, February 6, Luke joins us again for our quarterly meeting. He will give a lecture presentation on his studio and work. Subverting the traditional quilting form by integrating modern concepts, his art transforms the comfortably familiar into the visually evocative. See how his work takes some old favorites and gives them a purely modern twist!
