Upcoming Speakers

October Meeting

Tony Jacobson 

You can add a lot of interest and movement into your quilts with your choice of fabric. Tony Jacobson will show examples of how you can make simple quilts look like they take a lot more time and effort than they actually do. Fabric selection is the key to simplifying your quilt making with wonderful results. He will also show how the same quilt design can be transformed from traditional to contemporary to modern based on what fabrics are used.

Tony Jacobson uses his decades of experience as a graphic designer to show how a pattern can be changed up with your choices of fabric. He will also show how you can make slight modifications to a pattern to make exciting changes in the overall design. Bold fabric combinations and getting over a fear of bright colors can bring a quilt to life in a new way.

You will also learn how Tony got into quilting and what he uses for inspiration when he is designing quilts. This trunk show will definitely get you inspired to try new approaches to your quilting.
