Upcoming Programs and Workshops

February:  Susan Edmonson, “Creative Journey”

Susan Edmonson is an award winning quilt maker who started this journey in 1981 and today continues to wow her audiences with her unique artistry. She has designed quilt patterns and kits for two national stores as well as her own pattern line.
Her specialties have been folk art, crazy quilted purses and wall quilts, and “flower doodles.” Fabric collage books and mini art quilts are among her newest creations using mixed media techniques. All of her work is lavished with beading and embroidery. She loves working with vintage style fabrics and colors. The patterns she designs have evolved from original pieces inspired from vintage quilt designs and nature that showcase her own unique style. She will talk to us about her creative journey.

Upcoming Challenges To Get Those Creative Juices Flowing! 

  • Cowlumbia! Check out the Houston CowQuilts that have taken the pasture by storm. Mary Lou Weidman started a twist on words using the “Out of the Box With Easy Blocks” ideas. We will learn more about joining this herd, but google Houston Cow Quilts for your ideas!
  • July’s Christmas fabric “exchange.” Buy your yard of beautiful Christmas fabric now and bring it to the July meeting. We will start our Christmas projects early with a bag of Christmas fabrics! Learn more at our meetings! Just buy the fabric now!! (And if you think you might forget where you put the fabric between now and then, let Anita know and she’ll remind you where you “hid” it for safe keeping!)
  • A 6 part mystery quilt will start in April. This is an easy project that would be great to work on during our Sit and Sews or to make for a charity quilt. Cost will be $5.00.
