April 10 Guild Meeting

"The New Face of Art Quilts"

Pat Pauly is a pioneer quilt artist who lives in Rochester, NY. She retired from a career as a museum exhibit designer and is now able to travel to teach and share her passion for quilting. Her work was chosen from thousands of entries for Quilt National 1983 and 2011. Pat uses bold color and unusual combinations of printed and painted fabric. For our meeting presentation, Pat will explore the similarities between the composition of traditional quilts and the avant-garde art pieces that more resemble paintings and prints than their cozy counterparts. 

For more information about Pat's classes, go to the Programs & Classes tab.

REMINDER: Stop by the Material Girls table to pick up your fabric and pattern for our May 2015 Batik Block Drawing.
