    More and more quilters are considering themselves textile artists.  Just as with any of the more traditionally recognized art forms, their makers need to be familiar with and have some facility with the elements and principles of design including value, line, space, balance, unity, etc.  This slide lecture is an introduction to these design essentials which we’ll examine embodied in quilts.

    Let me be your guide on a walk through historical, political, and personal events that have inspired generations of quilters. In my presentation I reflect on quilters work and how they find inspiration to create, to express, and to mark milestones in their lives. The program is full of historical information as well as touching personal stories that many quilters can relate to. I bring along a large collection of quilts (over 50) that will entertain and inspire your members. I hope to inspire you with many reasons to continue to create and enjoy quilting even more than you do now.
