JULY 2018

July 1   - Crazy Quilt Club

July 10 - Guild Meeting: Lecture/Program: “Quilting A Life” by Barbara Olsen 
               Time 6:30 Social, 7:00pm – 9:00 pm

               Barbara takes listeners on a wonderful journey through quilting and                           creativity to purpose. She shares her evolution from quilter to quilt artist                 and shows many of her award-winning quilts. More importantly, she                           discusses the tools, which helped her understand her life’s purpose.                           These invaluable tools help listeners expand their creativity, and develop                 their natural talents, in whatever area they may be.

July 11 - Workshop, “Prismatic Flowers” with Barbara Olsen
                Time: 9:00a – 4:00   Location: O’Fallon Township Building 

​                 Playing with color, texture, depth and shading.
                 Students will manifest a small flower piece filled       
                 with light and energy. Choosing one of Barbara’s
                 flower drawings eliminates the drafting and allows
                 students to go right to designing with fabric.
                 The ingredients needed to create a flower filled
                 with light and energy are: A playful spirit.
                 A wonderful variety of multi colored shaded fabrics.
                 Batiks, hand dyed, painted or marbled fabric and some novelty flowered                   fabrics. Solids or calicos do not work. This is only a beginning. Creating                       these textual prismatic flowers involves lots of thread and is addictive.

July 14, Saturday,  Workshop “Cosmic Spirals” with Barbara Olsen
              Time: 9:00a – 4:00   Location: O’Fallon Township Building 

​              Students will learn the techniques Barbara uses in her
              award winning quilts for designing and constructing magical
              spirals, and will begin a small wall hanging containing one
              18” block. Foundation piecing is used to achieve precise
              points for the geometric black and white spiral. Color is
              then added to the next round of the spiral with strips to
              complete the block. Drafting of the spiral will be
              demonstrated, a preprinted pattern will be provided.
              Many design options will be discussed.
