Report:

Our October meeting was filled with exciting learning, progress and creative ideas! 

  • Susan Madden gave us an excellent class on “Easy Curved Piecing” which is especially useful in landscape/art quilting for horizons and layered geological formations. Equally so for amusing art quilts like Janet’s piece titled “Brain Bleed” (you have to see this!) Thank you so much Susan.
  • A fun-filled show and tell – this is a creative and talented group all still learning together.
  • A reminder that there is a SAQA sanctioned art quilt exhibit at the Farmington Visitor Center through January 4th. A field trip is under consideration.
  • Updates on the Historical Museum project with more beautiful and wonderful quilted interpretations of our county’s history were shown and discussed. Lou Ann Jacobson-Ball reported that if they all are completed by January as committed, we will have 20  10 x 12 blocks. If you are interested in participating in this fundraiser project for our newest local museum, please come to our next meeting on November 21st or contact Lou Ann directly. 
  • New challenge suggestions for 2020: “Bee” and “Time Flies. Perhaps a mini art quilt show at Olio in Mancos. Janet is researching

Upcoming BWB meeting Thursday November 21st at 1:00 p.m. 

  • We are delighted to announce a presentation by Dee McAliney called “Creative Imagination.”. She will take us on an adventure to expose the world around us – there are “Nurturing Nature” quilt ideas in every direction. All forms of consciousness will be explored including cultural and social representations.  Don’t miss this opportunity to see with fresh eyes.
