  Well known Hawaiian Quilter and hand applique artist and teacher, Nancy Lee Chong, spoke and shared an extensive trunk show of her exquisite work at our November guild meeting.

Nancy Lee Chong

Nancy loves teaching applique! Her mission to make sure quilters and needleworkers of all kinds learn just how easy and fun applique really is when it is not complicated by all kinds of extraneous tools and steps.  Nancy learned to make Hawaiian Quilts from Margaret Luika Kamaka in Kailua, Oahu, Hawaii, between 1978 and 1981. Calling on her degree in Education, she began teaching Hawaiian quiltmaking in 1982, when she moved to the Seattle, Washington area with her husband and daughter. In 1988, she made her first pieced quilt, and has been making both traditional and art quilts since. Hawaiian quilting and applique quilts continue to be her specialty. Her pieced and appliqued quilts have appeared in magazines, quilt books, and have traveled throughout the United States and to other countries.

Nancy taught workshops on Saturday and Sunday, November 18 and 19th.
