This month at QGOA: April Meeting – David Taylor – Artistry Through Applique
David Taylor is coming to us from New Hampshire. David began collecting fabric scraps out of his mother’s trashcan as a child, and by the age of 12 he was sewing on her old Kenmore sewing machine. Quilting is his profession now, and he makes amazing applique quilts. In his presentation, he will talk about Artistry through Applique.
On Wednesday David will teach a workshop on Pictorial Hand Applique. The workshop demonstrates layered, hand-applique technique with simple applique shapes using freezer paper templates and liquid starch. David will also tell us how to build pictorial wall quilts and how to get details by letting the fabric choices do the work.
The workshop is currently sold out, but we do have a wait list, in case there are any cancellations.
The Quilters’ Guild of Arlington was established in 1984 to:
- preserve and encourage the art of quilting,
- provide instruction for Guild members,
- educate the public,
- and to promote a gathering of people with this common interest.
We are a 501(c)3 charitable organization and do many activities to further the interest in Quilting.
We meet on the second Tuesday of each month.
