Our guild was founded in 1999 and our members include beginners through experts, with interests from art quilts to traditional quilts in an array of materials. Our purpose is to share a love of quilts and quilt making. We also sponsor seminars, exhibitions, workshops, and community service projects.
Thanks to Olga Schrichte of Frederick, MD, for the image of "The Spires of Frederick," above, which she designed and created in August 2015.
We meet on the second Thursday of each month, 6 p.m., at the Delaplaine Visual Arts Center, 40 S Carroll St, Frederick, MD
Watch for us as we bring our beautiful 2019 "Opportunity" Quilt to events this year where you can purchase your chance to win this gem. The quilt, “Fassetted Flowers," is queen-sized, is composed of Kaffe Fassett fabrics, and features hand applique and machine piecing by guild members.
Guest Speaker: Cheryl Lynch
Acclaimed quilter, Cheryl Lynch, will be our November guild meeting speaker. Her topic will be “Turning Travel into Treasures.” Cheryl is a fiber artist who designs quilts, travels to lecture, has authored 2 books and gives workshops. She invented Curvalicious, a tool to create quilts simply.
The following day, Friday, November 15, Cheryl Lynch will be teaching a "mini mosaic" workshop for from 9 am to 3 pm at Church of Christ, 1305 N Market St, Frederick. No sewing machine is required! Cost is $35 and there is an additional $20 kit fee--so a total of $55. To enroll in this workshop or for more information, please contact Frances Shearer: C: 630-730-3592 or firstname.lastname@example.org.
This is a fun no sew workshop that imitates the ancient art of mosaics, inspired by a trip to Israel. Learn how to create a mosaic picture from small pre-cut pieces of lots of colored fabric, using a technique that was developed to simplify the process. Pick one of the available patterns in class that will finish at 9"x12", and then can be bordered and quilted to your preference at home.
Our regular monthly events include refreshments, social time, and Show and Tell.
We hope to see everyone at the Delaplaine for our monthly meeting.
