Frieda Anderson, quilter and fabric artist, discovered hand dying fabric 30 years ago. Now she uses her own hand dyed cottons and silks exclusively in her work. In this lecture she will share her love for the art of quilting, the creativity involved in conceiving and designing new quilts and for the piecing, fusing and machine quilting to finish. Frieda’s quilts are nature inspired and machine quilted.
Join us for a lecture and trunk show with Frieda Anderson -artist, author, lecturer, teacher and inspiration. Fabrics and patterns available for purchase.

Please note that the May monthly meeting will be held at Augustana Lutheran Church, Woodlawn and 55th Street (enter the parking lot from Woodlawn, just south of 55th Street).
Our program this month features our own Samantha Clark and is titled:
"Every Quilt Can Tell a Complex Story. Expanding Symbolism in Your Work"
Samantha will present her approach to symbolism in her work. Recent projects include original patterns inspired by the Black Panther movie and an exhibit about the Book of the Dead at U of C Oriental Institute. "I want to get everyone thinking about how they can expand their quilts to create narratives beyond a single image or symbol." A great example was former presenter Dorothy Straughter who is exploring the history of African Americans thru her quilts.

Show & Tell
This organic display celebrates divergent styles and creative expression. Each quilt is designed and executed by 3 to 4 different quilters. The quilt is started with a center block about 10 to 12 inches square. Each subsequent participant takes the intention of the original quilter and interprets it to create a beautiful piece of art.
It a metaphor to demonstrate how working together we often create something much more unexpectantly" beautiful than individuals can do by themselves. Typical in public service, workint g together often produces better results.
One of our members shared the link to this film about the Houston Quilt Show. Enjoy!
