For our October meeting, Maggie Schwamb gave us a stellar tour of many years of CQ challenges to inspire us for this year’s 20″ x 20″ portrait challenge. It was a stimulating retrospective of the variety of themes and techniques that we’ve explored as a group. And she highlighted many resources and techniques we could tap to interpret the “portrait” theme in our own personal way.
The meeting kicked off with “Three Share Five,” a show of quilts by Jan Corson, Lynn Vermeulen, and Jim Vander Noot, with stories of their quilting journeys and the evolution of their work.
Fall is upon us, and with it, a new season for Coastal Quilters. New president Tori Manzi presented the results of our member survey, and Vice President Becca Babb-Brott unveiled an exciting program schedule for the year.
