Drumming Up Business


Our guest speaker tonight was Marcia Stein, with her lecture entitled Destinations: Travel-Inspired Quilts. Marcia showed her beautiful photographs and described methods for going "from photo to fabric."

Marcia's latest book Picture This!: Capture the Essence of a Photograph in Your Pictorial Quilt (released last week) presents her techniques for photos and quilts "even if you don't know how to draw or consider yourself to be an artist or photographer." That's always good to hear! Her book includes the following two quilts, so we were privileged to see them up close and personal:

Part of Marcia's technique for quilting is to plan the layout on vellum. She brought a couple of her patterns to show us. First, for her '52 Pickup quilt (thanks, Don!):

And next for her Ladies in Waiting quilt (thanks, Karen!):
