The second presenter in our “Artists Among Us” series was Carmen Smith. She loves the process but not the finishing! She works fast and is creative. She likes to keep it fun!
An itty bitty – she loves traditional quilts and Civil War prints!
Carmen has 700 spools of thread – you never know what color you are going to need and what if the fabric stores are closed?? So she bought this panel to try out some of her thread collection!! Lovely!!
Her Hat Ladies quilt designed and drawn by her! Her late sister is memorialized in this quilt.
She decided to try paper piecing and this colorful quilt is the result. Sewn at last year’s March Guild Retreat.
Urban Owls Quilt! This beauty is so visually interesting. Urban Owls is out of Texas.
Her design with Jesus knocking on her door. She used a photo representing Jesus from the internet and printed it on fabrick for the center of her quilt.
The program was ‘The Artists Among Us’. We heard from three of our members. Lorelle Eberly was our first presenter. Thanks to Ann P for keeping track of information about each quilt. I am going to borrow her words for some of this post and a couple of pictures!
Lorelle’s Aunt Helen’s quilt that she purchased at the estate auction – hand pieced and hand quilted.
Her Grandmother Bertha’s Dresden Plate.
A quilt made by Lorelle’s mother for their church. She used a design from a stained glass window to create this original design. This quilt was always on display at Easter.
