Westerville Quilt Guild

Westerville Quilt GuildLast night my sweet hubby chauffeured me to Columbus so I could speak at the Westerville Quilt Guild. We had a fun mini road trip, a nice dinner, and then a great time meeting this bunch of friendly quilters.

Earlier in the day, I bundled up all of my quilts that are currently living at my house (as opposed to those that are traveling or have permanent homes elsewhere). As I was organizing them, I realized that quite a few were in the away-from-home category, so I brought my PowerPoint presentation as well.

Speaking at Westerville Quilt GuildThe Westerville Quilt Guild meets in a really nice conference room complete with integrated technology and two screens. All I had to do was pop in my flash drive and away we went! I was very grateful that they kindly accomodated the last minute addition. This was the first time I was able to show an image of “Windblown” to any group other than my own quilt guild and I think they liked it. After the PowerPoint show, I was able to show them many of the actual quilts and there were lots of really good questions.

All in all, a very enjoyable evening. Thanks Karen and everyone else, too!

    I saw your presentation last night and was just blown away. I voted your quilt with the horses coming out of the book as my favorite at the National Quilt Show and wanted to cry looking at your 9/11 quilt. You are such an artist. I wished I had brought people with me for the meeting last night! I am thinking I may buy your video, but I feel it is soooo over my head — even though you talk like it is sooo easy… “just proportion” etc. thank you Thank you THANK YOU for showing us your art. I truly enjoyed it.

      Thank you so much – I’m so glad you liked my quilts! The fused applique portrait method that I teach in the first part of the DVD really IS easy! You use the computer to prepare your photo and then it’s just a matter of cutting with a pair of scissors. After making one, most people want to make more. They make great gifts. If you have any trouble at all, just email me.
