For Immediate Release:
Art Quilt Maps at Coastal Quilters
Camden, Maine, November 2, 2017—Timna Tarr returns to Coastal Quilters on Saturday, November 11th, for a trunk show and presentation titled “Marking a Spot.” She will bring several map quilts that she has created and talk about how her process evolved with each one. Her presentation promises to be an informative introduction in preparation for Coastal Quilters’s 2018 Challenge: “Art Quilt Maps.”
Timna will also discuss how to choose effective paper or digital maps to work from, and how different types of maps lend themselves to specific quilting techniques, such as paper piecing, appliqué, fusing, and more. The program will take place at the Lions Club in Camden, beginning at 9:30 a.m. It is free and open to all. After her presentation, Ms. Tarr will conduct a workshop on map quilts (the workshop is full).
Quilter, teacher, and lecturer Timna Tarr comes from a long line of quilters but did not begin quilting until after studying art history in college. Her quilts have won many awards and have been in numerous juried exhibitions, including American Quilting Society shows, the International Quilt Festival in Houston, and the National Quilting Society show in Columbus. In addition, her quilts have been featured in several quilting magazines and books. Timna lives in South Hadley, Massachusetts.
