Ever wonder - what would this quilt look like if I made it in another color way? If I used plaids and stripes instead of florals? Well, I can't tell you what EVERY quilt would look like, but we can explore some practical examples together! In a fun format, we will compare quilts made in florals versus batiks, reproduction fabrics versus crisp modern prints, brights versus pastels. Gather inspiration and insight into the choices for your next project!

"Color Magic" with Julia Graves
Join the Lakeside Quilting Guild on Tuesday, January 10, 2023 for "Color Magic" with Julia Graves. This program will be virtual and free to members; guests ($5 cost) can also view the presentation. Guests should contact firstname.lastname@example.org to arrange payment and obtain the link for the presentation.
Julia Graves started her quilting business, Special Occasion Quilts LLC, in 2007 and teaches, lectures, designs patterns, makes commission quilts, longarms for others and sells & services APQS longarm machines. She won Best Longarm Machine Workmanship Wall Quilt Category at the 2016 Mid-Atlantic Quilt Festival, has had quilts published in books by Gloria Loughman, Katie Pasquini-Masupust and MJ Kinman, was an Artist in Residence at Empty Spools in 2019, and taught at Empty Spools Seminars and Hudson River Valley Art Workshops.
Julia has been sewing since she was ten and always loved fabric, needle arts and the entire creative process. She did her apprenticeship as a quilter by making a quilt for each of her nieces and nephews (and thinks she should have counted them before making this promise – there were 32!). She has since made more quilts than she can count, many for charity, and is partial to scrap quilts and working with color to achieve amazing results. Visit her gallery on her website at http://www.soquilts.com. You can also find her on Instagram at #juliagraves82, or Facebook at soquilts. Julia lives in Leesburg Virginia.

August meeting with Dana Jones
Pagtinabangay: The Quilts and Quiltmakers of Caohagan Island
Presented by Dana Jones
You’ll be transported to a tiny island — just 13 acres — in the central Philippines as you enjoy images and stories of the colorful quilts and the more than 100 quiltmakers of Caohagan Island. You’ll see photos of more than 50 of these handmade, one-of-a-kind quilts plus be introduced to the unique techniques developed by these quiltmakers whose tools are simply fabric and scissors, needle and thread. I spent more than a month on the island, quilted with the residents, went fabric shopping with them on nearby Cebu Island, and snorkeled the reef that surrounds Caohagan. Those who view the quilts come away smiling, inspired by the creativity of these women and men.

Carole Lyles Shaw will be joining Lakeside Quilting Guild on Tuesday, April 12 at 7 pm for a lecture on what makes a modern quilt (pre-lecture gathering time starts at 6:30 pm).
Carole started teaching herself to quilt to make quilts for her wonderful nieces and nephews. She found her first quilting home with the African American Quilters of Baltimore, who gently taught her the best techniques to express her quilt vision.
Today, she designs patterns to help beginning and experienced quilters confidently dive into modern quilting. she is excited about modern quilting because it is all about bringing individualism and free expression to the way we design and make quilts today. She hopes that her patterns will inspire you to find ways to let your own creative voice shine.
If you would like to attend this lecture, please contact email@example.com -- The lecture is free to guild members and $5 for guests.
