Lori DeJarnatt will be the featured speaker at the April WQG meeting. The program is Quilts Through the Seasons: I never thought I’d be making big and small quilts to celebrate each season, but with 20+ years of quilt making my home is filled with quilts that reflect each season. This lecture will show you how to look at your quilts as seasonal décor, giving you a great reason to show off your beautiful quilts. (or make more!)
I took my first quilt class in 1993 and have been quilting ever since.
I am inspired by vintage quilts but I cannot afford to purchase every antique quilt I come across I’ve started to reproduce them. It seems to be my favorite style, although mini’s, two color quilts, patriotic and wool appliqué rank high on my favorites list as well.
I have been an active blogger since 2009 at www.humblequilts.blogspot.com and have hosted several quiltalongs which are very popular. I live in a small community and blogging closes the gap between quilters that live far from guilds or quilt groups.
When I’m not quilting I can be found outside running, hiking, camping, and I’ve even been known to jump out of perfectly good airplanes! (with a parachute, of course!)
I live with my husband and 4 legged running companion and have 2 grown children.
