Guest Speaker

My local quilt guild, the Mountain Laurel Quilt Guild, welcomed national quilting lecturer/teacher Gyleen Fitzgerald last week for a very informative program on "The Art of Color Blending".

Here she begins the lecture by showing her very first quilt -- three fabrics, three colors, all solids, same block repeated over and over.

Gyleen continued with the trunk show of the lovely quilts she made as she continued to grow as a quilt artist, using more color and more fabrics to make the quilts a lot more interesting. To paraphrase what she said, her goal was to "make the judges spend more time on my quilt so that they won't move on to yours".

You can see more photos of the trunk show and workshop from the following day on my guild's blog here.
