Quilters Newsletter October/November 2010
It's that time of year again when Fall has arrived, outside activities have lessened, and we can get back to dreaming, designing, piecing and quilting to our heart's desire! Take a fascinating tour through the International Quilt Study Center exhibit, South Asian Seams: Quilts from India, Pakistan and Bangladesh. We debut our 300 Words about Quilting, where four QN readers honor the people who taught them to love quilts. Our Meetin' Place artist Charla Khana creates eye-catching soft sculptures of patchwork, embroidery and embellishment. Learn how attention to detail and determination enabled our featured Peerless quiltmaker, Sherry Reynolds, to construct her incredible Reynolds Crossing. Rose Huges' Workshop on fast-piece applique is a fun way to make a quick and beautiful background for your next project. Beth Ferrier's wash-away technique for applique and bobbin embroidery is fun and easy.
Envision your own Indian Summer with a pattern by Australian quilter Kathy Doughty, or improve your hand applique skills with Father's Whistle by quiltmaker Chungsu Lee or part 3 of 4 in our series quilt, Flea Market by irene Berry. In the final installment of Delta Dawn, we'll reveal the conclusion to the mystery, including a complete assembly diagram and suggestions for finishing your quilt.
