A night with LAURA PATTERSON from Bay City



LAURA PATTERSON from Bay City came to our guild and gave a trunk show of her past quilting projects.  Her quilts were featured in the Bay City Heritage Quilt Show.  During the trunk show she explained how she made many of her remarkable quilts.  She gave a demonstration of how to hand piece, how to use ultra-suede to make SKINNY applique motifs. and how to embroider and using beading on organza to make your own applique.  Laura stated that hand piecing was faster for her then machine works as she pieces when goes on trips, waits for appointments or watches TV.  She said she is rarely without a project.  

I am posting just a few of the many pictures I took
of her quilts.  I took over 45 pictures and would have taken more but my battery died.
