“Dream Big” Quilting Challenge

This   year’s   QVQC   member   challenge   is   quilting.      Using   the   panel   “Dream   Big”   in   any   color   they   select, members   are   showing   how   quilting   can   change   or   effect   the   look   of   the   panel. The   challenge   is   to   “leave your   mark”   through   quilting.   For   this   challenge   only   the   panel   is   used.   There   are   no   added   borders   or other extras added. Quilting is done by hand, sit down machine, or stand up machine.

HERstory: A Celebration of Strong Women - A traveling exhibit of 52 quilts

curated by Susanne M. Jones

Throughout   history,   women   have   struggled   to   have   a   voice   until   gaining   the   right   to   vote   in   1920.   In   keeping   with our   celebration   and   recognition   of   Susan   B. Anthony,   we   present   HERstory: A   Celebration   of   Strong   Women. Each   of   the   52   quilts   represents   a   woman   whose   courage   and   intelligence   we   admire   and   the   ground- breaking accomplishments that have inspired us all.

Domestic Abuse Series by Quilt Artist Lynn Carson Harris

Using   textile   art   techniques   from   past   and   present,   Lynn   Carson   Harris   has   created   a   series   of small   scale   abstract   designs   inspired   by   the   experiences   of   someone   close   to   her   who   is   in an     abusive     relationship.     Her     goal     is     help     prevent     domestic     abuse     by     increasing understanding and awareness of this pervasive problem.
