The Choo Choo Quilt Guild is launching a program in 2011 to change some of this. The yearlong program is called, "Inspirational Quilting," and the goal for the monthly exercises planned is to learn to appreciate the marriage of the art and the heart that is enveloped into even the simplest of our projects. For centuries, our fore-mothers knew that quiltmaking served as an artistic outlet. Let us again be reminded of that.
The program begins Monday, January 17 with a lesson called “Learning to See Again.” For Monday’s meeting, please bring:
- a 9” x 12” (or larger) sketchpad,
- a pencil for drawing,
- your copy of "Fearless Design for Every Quilter" by L. Torrence and J. B. Mills; read the "Laying the Groundwork" section for the meeting,
- a willingness to relax, experiment, learn and grow.
