April 9 – SHANNON SHIRLEY – An Eclectic Mix
Quilts of all styles, including quilts inspired by children’s artwork, quilts incorporating vintage needlework, art quilts, traditional and creative quilts labels . . . there is sure to be something to interest everyone! Shannon began quilting in 1989 and will share some of the lessons she has learned along the way. She started as a mainly self-taught quilter, machine piecer, and hand lap quilter. Over the years, she started taking technique classes to understand how quilters were creating the wonderful art quilts she was seeing at shows. She has always been eclectic in other areas of her life, and quilting is no different. She now uses any technique from her toolbox to achieve the end result . . . a beautiful, unique quilt.
