Quilters Gather Details

July's Presentations 

Describing What I See—Articulating Matisse - Presented by Fredda Cassidy

What do we see when we look at a painting? a quilt? The proverb, “Beauty is in the eye of the beholder” springs to mind. In this episode from Gather’s Design Element series, Fredda takes us beyond the “beauty” response—“I like this”—“I dislike that”—by parsing Matisse's painting, The Blue Window. Using design vocabulary to describe and comment on the piece, she will model how to provide valuable critique to yourself and others by applying design terminology to a variety of quilts.

Chunk of the Month - A Mystery Quilt for 2022

A new Chunk of the Month will be introduced. More info about this activity here.

Make a Gift Show and Tell - Part 2

Other than quilts, what gifts have you made for family, friends or yourself? We will continue this month focusing on gifts we have made from our fabric, thread and embellishment stash. The Quilters Gather team has more to share with you but we would like to see what you have made. For July and August, send your photos to EBHQuilters.Gather@gmail.com. You can hold up your gifts to the camera if you prefer. The photos are easier to see and give us a sense of how much time to allot to this segment. Let’s get inspired!

Virtual Open Studio: Curious how other quilters use their creative space? Want to discover organizational ideas and tips? Please show us your studio at an upcoming Quilters Gather. Participating is a great motivation to organize and clean your space! If you are interested, please contact us at EBHQuilters.Gather@gmail.com.

To join our postcard swap: Select “Yes” to the Postcard Exchange option when you register for Quilters Gather. Mail your homemade fabric postcard within two weeks of receiving your partner’s name and address, and then look forward to receiving one in the mail! If you are not attending Quilters Gather but want to participate, email your name and address to EBHQuilters.Gather@gmail.com. For examples and a tutorial on fabric postcards see Susan Dague’s webpage

We will also view your images for the Color Wheel Study, Chunk of the Month or any other project you would like to share. And we will marvel at your postcard exchanges and Show and Tell.
