Feb. 5, 2019 Laura Welklin from Noblesville will present "My Quilting Journey." Laura is a frequent award winner at IHQS and international shows and is probably best known for her miniature quilts. She will teach a workshop on Small Scale Fused Appliqué on Feb. 6. This is the last workshop of the quilting year.
March 5, 2019 Rayna Gillman from Florida will present "Taking the Leap with 'What If?' ” (We will share Rayna with IHQS in March.) She will be speaking about improv piecing and quilting. Online Rayna states: “I create art for the wall using fabrics I have dyed, printed, and purchased. Working improvisationally -- without patterns, I cut, design and stitch the pieces together until they tell me they are done." She encourages quilters to use their intuition, to experiment, and to enjoy the results of ‘happy accidents.’
April 2, 2019 Sandra Peterson is an award-winning quilt artist from Muncie, Indiana. She considers herself a traditional quilter in construction, but is considered a contemporary quilt artist because of her designs, which are geometrically precise with optical or graphic appeal. Her quilts are hand quilted.
