Quilt Guild Lecture

Monday evening was my local quilt guild's meeting for the month of February.  I've noticed that there are fewer quilters showing up when the weather is cold compared to earlier this year.  However, we did have a really great speaker last night.

Sue Pritt of Sweet Season Quilts was the guest lecturer.  She spoke about how she grew up not as a sewer, but as a "fixer" just like her mother.  They didn't sew for the purpose of making clothes or quilts, but for the purpose of mending items around the home.  Eventually Sue started making a quilt or two and then she got into paper piecing and fusible applique.  Her quilts that she brought to the lecture were amazing.  Here is an example of one of her patterns:

The amount of texture she has on her quilts is amazing.  She does her own quilting, too, on her regular sewing machine.

Sue's patterns can be found in many quilt shops as well as through Keepsake Quilting.  If you do have a chance to go to a lecture by Sue, definitely go!  It was informative and a fun lecture!

 Happy Crafting!
