Upcoming Speakers for the General Meetings
May 18th, 2021 – Carl Hentsch (3 Dog Design) – Amish Inspired Quilts for Today
Noted quilt designer Carl Hentsch has always admired Amish quilts and quilters. Living only a short distance from an old-order Amish community has allowed him to explore their world and come to know and respect some of these quilters and their ability to create beautiful quilts without the use of electricity. Amish-Inspired Quilts for Today explores their use of color and design using modern fabrics and techniques. Based on a 6-color color wheel with various tints and shades used to enhance his designs. Basket quilts, log cabin quilts and star quilts with bursts and blooms of color. Be inspired!
June 15th, 2021 – Patricia Beleya (OKAN ARTS) – The Alluring World of Japanese Yukata Quilts
Patricia will take us on an insider tour of the 2020 Tokyo Quilt Festival. She’ll present the highlights of this international quilt event, and then continue into a traditional chusen-dyeing workshop to explain this traditional hand-dyeing process. Patricia will finish with a showing of her own quilts, made with vintage Japanese cottons, and will talk about how these special fabrics inspired her.
