We will be bringing the love to the February meeting with our feature speaker, Lorna Shapiro of Quilters Dream Fabrics:
VMQG member Lorna Shapiro came to quilting with a very left-brain focus after a 35-year career in IT and management. Lorna didn’t like following other people’s patterns and started almost immediately making her own designs. These early quilts, lacking an aesthetic that pleased her, prompted her to start researching what artists and designers knew that she didn’t. Lorna will discuss what makes a compelling and cohesive design, and also describe some of the variables that will help you identify the characteristics of your personal aesthetic. There will be lots of quilt photos so that the principles Lorna discusses become tangible and easy to recall.
