April 2017: Meeting & Workshop

We were treated to a presentation and trunk show by modern quilt designer Amy Friend at our April meeting. She brought the quilts that are in her new book, Improv Paper Piecing, as well as some of her latest quilts.

During the afternoon, Amy gave a workshop where we learned how to design our own paper-pieced block and various ways of incorporating it into a modern quilt. The photos below are from the workshop.
