Our speaker for April is Kathy Logan de Chavez, a long-time guild member and Past President (2011-13).
Kathy has roots in traditional quilting but ventured into smaller art-oriented pieces when she realized that they held her attention a bit better and afforded her a better completion rate! She favors brighter colors and appliqué, but confesses she has never met a color she doesn’t like and has just completed a pieced bed quilt (with some appliqué on it!). Kathy is always up for a challenge related to quilting; she strongly advocates that the EDQG challenge is a great way to keep learning and stepping outside our comfort zone.
Kathy was the Guild Grant recipient in 2015 and travelled to Port Gamble, Washington, where she took two classes with fibre artist Hilde Morin. Her goal was to explore improvisational technique in different formats. Come hear about the beautiful setting, unbelievable rain, gorgeous flowers, ghost hunting, and of course, Kathy’s experience with a talented teacher and artist.
