  • Karla Alexander Is Our Speaker In April


    Quilt designer and author, Karla Alexander, lives in beautiful Salem, Oregon.
    Karla's philosophy regarding quilting is to enjoy the process, learn from your experience and take what you learn from one project on to the next.

    APRIL LECTURE - LIFT THE QUILTS OUT OF YOUR STASH
    An informative discussion for quilt makers of all skill levels and experience. You will be looking at your stash in a whole new way and actually start using your fabric rather than just admiring it! Enjoy the con-fidence you'll gain exploring traditional and untraditional quilt methods by adding your own twist! Tips
    will inspire excitement, creating unexpected surprises ready to be quilted into your next project! Challenge yourself to take small or bold steps as you learn to work with your fabric and create your own methods and styles. A trunk show with lots of and lots of quilts will illustrate many different styles
    of quilts as well as subjects discussed.

    You can read more about Karla by visiting our Speakers page and attending our general membership meeting on April 27th.
    HAPPY QUILTING!!!



    2017 RAFFLE QUILTS
    We are proud to present two quilts for this years’ raffle,
    "The Garden Imagined", and "A Garden Mosaic".


    "The Garden Imagined"is 78" X 94" and was quilted by Heartbeat Quilting (Wanda Jeffries and Nikki Sue) in Spokane Valley, WA.



    "A Garden Mosaic"" is 64" X 80" and was quilted by Sew-Into-Quilts & Sew-Fix-It, LLC (Twila Prociw) in Deer Park, WA.

    We thank Mary Sue Suit for her permission to use her technique for our path in "The Garden Imagined" and for allowing us to modify her design "Pierre" in making "A Garden Mosaic". These are included in her book "A New Turn On Drunkard's Path".

    WSQ members were asked to design and make blocks to represent what they'd see in an English flower garden. Thanks to all who made wonderful and creative blocks. These blocks are incorporated in both quilts. "The Garden Imagined" is a design by Naomi Hall, a WSQ member, and is ONE of a kind. A WSQ original.

    Each quilt will also have two pillows presented with each.





    Drawing for the quilts will be on the last day of our 2017 quilt show, at 3:00 pm on Sunday, Oct 22 at the Spokane County Fair & Expo Center. "The Garden Imagined" will be drawn first.




    The show is over, but there is still more to look at.
