Welcome to Maple Leaf Quilters

A Quilt Guild based in Rutland, Vermont, with members from surrounding towns and counties.

 

Our next meeting is Tuesday,

September 17, 2019


***Please bring your summer challenge (see below)


Featured Speaker:  Sarah Ann Smith


 

Our first Workshop this year will be by Sarah Ann Smith.
Her inspirational workshop will be held on Wednesday, September 18.
Workshop Description
Learn to translate Sarah’s photo of a flower (pink water lily or orange day-lily) into a pattern and construct an enticing (fused- collage) quilt top. Along the way, you’ll learn about design, value, shading, shape, selecting a good photo to use, different ways to approach your fused collage shapes, and how to apply Sarah’s process to your work. Sarah also offers a follow-on workshop called Thread-Coloring the Garden which teaches how to use thread the way an artist uses paint, pen and pencil. If students wish and they have a photo they would like to turn into a quilt, they can bring it for a brief consultation in the afternoon, time permitting.
Registration for the workshop is on a first-come, first-serve basis and will be sure to fill up quickly, as the workshop is also open to other quilt guilds in our area. Please email Jenn at jenvt816@yahoo.com and she will be happy to sign you up. After registration, a supply list will be emailed to you. Cost is $40 for MLQ Guild members and $45 for non-members.
