February Program
The program for the February meeting will be Sarah Ruiz sharing a lecture and truck show with us.

This month the Vancouver Modern Quilt Guild is excited to present Sarah Ruiz for the monthly program.

Sarah is a quilter and aerospace engineer from Houston, TX. Her creative and technical sides have always been intertwined; from drawing Disney characters and memorizing constellations as a kid to more recently, taking humans back to the moon and dreaming up new quilts. Quilting perfectly combines her engineering and artistic mindsets, and she loves the puzzle solving required to turn an idea into reality. Her quilts feature bright colors, bold lines, and graphic shapes that are easy to make but pack a visual punch.

For our February meeting, Sarah will be sharing her lecture and trunk show that covers her quilting journey from 2011 to present. She shares some of her favorite quilts, some hits and misses, and her design inspiration.

Here are some of Sarah’s amazing quilts:

She will also touch on how she uses goal-setting and projects like the 100 Day Project to get things done, and a bit about her career as a NASA engineer and how it impacts her quilting work.
