Speaker- Kimberly Hess

-Quilting to Barn Quilts, Her Story —

Kimberly learned quilting as a hobby when she graduated early and needed to

fill in time getting “crafty”. About 10 years later, after finding a close classmate had been killed in action, she made a quilt to be auctioned at the Brian Robert Bill Golf Tournament. Later, she made five Memory Quilts from his belongings for family members. She continues to support her friend’s charity. She feels honored to make memory quilts using what she calls “small pieces” of a person’s life. She has also branched out to making Barn Quilts and documenting barn quilts in the community. She teaches classes on making them, including teaching classes to raise money after flooding.


For Members, This Meeting is an In-person meeting

September Workshop

Workshop, Wednesday September 18, 2024
Amy Friend of During Quiet Time

Amy is an award-winning quilter and her quilts have been exhibited at multiple Quilt Shows as well as in museums. Amy is a national quilt teacher and lecturer. She is doing a lecture in September for MLQ on Improvisational Paper Piecing and this ties in with the workshop.

Improvisational Paper Piecing Workshop
“This workshop is based on one of the three design approaches that I share in my second book, Improv Paper Piecing: A Modern Approach to Quilt Design. This class is technique and design based, all about approaching your paper pieced block designs improvisationally. You will design and sew your own block and work on a quilt layout using alternate grid work, negative space, and other elements of modern design.”
