Quick Picks

August 14th Guild Meeting

Linda Cantrell - "Appliqué...I Did It My Way"
Linda’s specialty is humorous pictorial appliqué quilts. You have probably had quite a chuckle as you viewed the comic details of her quilts in many AQS and other quilt shows. She is a juried member of the Southern Highlands Craft Guild and lives in Fletcher, NC. Linda will share her experiences with entering quilt contests and being judged in her Friday lecture: Appliqué...I Did It My Way. Some of us may remember her hilarious presentation here in 2006.

2016 AQS Ultimate Guild Challenge
Sign ups for this challenge begin in August and it's never too early to start thinking and designing and sewing for this one -- the February due date will be here before you know it! Check out all the details on the AQS Challenge tab above.
