Quilt Guild Meeting - NLQG

Wow, did we have a fun North Louisiana Quilter's Guild meeting yesterday. I am vice-president of our chapter...which means I am responsible for getting great programs each month. Yesterday truly was a great program. Dorothy Williams is a member of our chapter AND is a member and circuit teacher of Gulf States Quilting Association. She is also a Bernina fashion designer and modeled her designer garment at the 2002 Houston International Quilt Show.

Dorothy will be teaching "Flowers Go South" at the GSQA seminar in Baton Rouge in March and she gave us a wonderful preview of her flowers: Fuchsia, Forsythia, Hydrangea, Wild Rose, Wisteria and Pansy. Her six-block sampler quilt is exquisite.

Dorothy's tools: pinking shears, fabric paint pens, acrylic paint, template plastic, embroidery floss, pearls and beads. Most of these items, she says, can be purchased at Hobby Lobby. She also loves to incorporate Dupioni silk and batik fabric. Dorothy found a great array of batiks in the BATIKS GALORE booth in Houston this past year.

Fill your heart with sunshine and flowers.
