Rosy, Kate, and Bette said farewell to their role of program co-chairs this month. We invite HQ members to pay tribute to their Quilt Inspiration. Who inspired you to quilt? Do you own or have a photo of a quilt that person made? Or have you made a quilt based on techniques you learned from the quilter who inspired you? We hope that members will volunteer to share a 5 to 10 minute tribute to their Quilt Inspiration, the quilter who inspired them to embark on their creative quilting journey. We’re sure that there are many wonderful stories of Quilt Inspiration among our members. We look forward to hearing them in May.
APRIL 3, 2012:
Our April meeting was greatly enhanced by the presentation of a historical segment from the DVD “Why Quilts Matter: History, Art & Politics”. We thank Linda for lending us her copy.
