The Trunk Show of PHYLLIS JACOBS from BIG RAPIDS

.
.
October 25, 2017   -  



Speaker:    Phyllis Jacobs Trunk Show from BIG RAPIDS
I had a delightful phone conversation with Phyllis.  She described her quilting as colorfully eclectic.  She loves bright colors, complex and challenging piecing and non -repetitive block construction.  She gets a lot of inspiration from her favorite quilt artists Jenny Byers,  Paula Nadelstern and Judy Niemeyer.  She says she has a 100 projects to pick from and plans to bring her favorite quilts.

THE QUILTED GOOSE 

Linda Thielfoldt operates THE QUILTED GOOSE out of TROY, MICHIGAN.
Linda was at our guild last in 2010, since then she has authored a book, ON MY WAY TO BALTIMORE.  The book was published my AQS and pays homage to the Baltimore Album Quilts from the 1880s, and who does not love BALTIMORE QUILTS? 

She has  won awards at the national quilt shows.  Linda was also on Series 10, of THE QUILT SHOW. 

I am anxious to find out what she has been up to .. her trunk shows are known to be outstanding.  Linda was an instructor at this year's GRAND RAPIDS AQS QUILT SHOW for machine quilting by domestic and on a long arm. 

Linda has been quilting for 40 years and the guild is in for a treat and we will see a lot of EYE CANDY!
