This Month's Speaker

November 20, 2019 – Using Quilts To Illustrate Your Stories, Trudy Cowan

Trudy -nov


Every quilt has a story – when, why, for whom, colour and design choices, techniques selected and more. Some of that might be on a label on the back. Trudy Cowan, art quilter and teacher, takes her quilts themselves further into the realm of storytelling and illustration. How do the image, fabrics, embellishments and techniques convey and support the tale you wish to tell? She’ll bring the illustrations she created for her children’s book, The Little Grey Mouse: A Fable in Fabric, published by Frontenac House, November 2018.
