Watercolor Quilting

The May 15 Guild meeting will be interesting and fun for anyone who enjoys "playing" with color.

Lynn Holland will share 'Watercolor Quilting" with us. This is essentially painting with fabric (that's with fabric, not on fabric) to achieve a quilt that makes you think of an impressionistic painting.

Watercolor quilt projects are often sold as kits – and often done as wallhangings – but Lynn will show us how to go about designing our own projects and she will bring her "masterpiece" for us to see – a full-size bed quilt – it is just amazingly beautiful!

We'll hear all about the best kinds of fabric to use, design strategies, cutting options, and general sewing instruction for assembling the final product. And yes, Lynn will bring fabric squares so we can try our hand at laying out our own design.

All of this will take place on Saturday, May 15, from 2:00 - 4:00 PM at the downtown library at 68 Calhoun Street, upstairs in Meeting Room B. The first hour of parking in the deck under the library is free – and additional time is $1.00 per hour.

As always we look forward to seeing you all, and visitors are encouraged and welcome!
